09:05 Danica Weeks - the wife of Paul Weeks - one two New Zealanders on board flight MH370
Danica Weeks says it has been a constant battle to get information from Malaysian Airlines, but she is determined to find out what happened to the missing plane, for the sake of her children. She says it was devastating to hear last week that the `ping' sounds believed to have come from the missing plane's black box, were now unlikely to have come from the plane.
MH370 has now been missing for almost three months.
