Malaysia's government is focused on analyzing data from the three-years-long search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in a bid to locate the missing plane, Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai said Thursday. The comments came a just a day after the airline marked its three years of disappearance anniversary.

“We also received assistance from relevant Australian government agencies to analyze satellite images," Liow told local media. “Existing data will be reviewed while debris believed to be from the Boeing 777 aircraft found along the coast of South Africa will also be reviewed,” he added.

The multimillion-dollar search for Flight MH370, which was concentrated in a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean was suspended in January after failing to yield any concrete clues about the plane's disappearance.

Several debris pieces washed up on the shores of nearby islands of the Indian Ocean, many of which were believed to be from the ill-fated jet. While there have been several conspiracy theories surrounding the disappearance of the Boeing 777-200, families of those on board are still waiting for answers as to what happened to the jet.

Flight MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board while on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

On Thursday, Liow said that Malaysia Airlines held a closed-door ceremony to commemorate the victims of Flight MH370 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Wednesday. The ceremony was attended by airline staff and families of 13 crew members, who were on the jet.

Last week, a newly created foundation Project 370 launched a crowdfunding campaign to pay for further efforts to find the missing plane.

"We are aware that this is a huge undertaking, but we all feel it is one well worth doing," Mark D. Young, a South African photographer, and aviation-focused author, said in a news release. "We cannot just sit back and let the final resting place of 239 fellow human beings not be found. How they got there is a vital question that has to be answered for the safety of every airline passenger in the world."
