Relatives of passengers on the Malaysia Airlines plane that mysteriously vanished shouldn't give up hope quite yet: There still could be survivors.
The news comes as more "suspicious" objects were found floating in the ocean within the search site.
A Malaysian official met with families Saturday and told them he hadn't given up on the possibility that there might be survivors among those on the missing jet, which disappeared over the Indian Ocean March 8.
"Even hoping against hope, no matter how remote, of course, we are praying and we will continue our search for the possible survivors," said Malaysia's acting transportation minister Hishammuddin Hussein.
But he also said he didn't want to give them "false hope."
Earlier this week, relatives were told the opposite -- that all lives were lost aboard the airplane, which is believed to have crashed into the sea.
Meanwhile, investigators spotted three "suspicious" new objects floating in the water Saturday, but they weren't confirmed to be linked to debris from Flight 370.
The objects were described as white, red, and orange. The discovery comes after 122 other items were seen floating in the ocean. None of the findings have yet been positively identified as coming from the missing plane.
Check out CNN's latest report on the investigation:
These poor families have been on such an emotional roller coaster since the jet vanished three weeks ago. Let's hope they get some real answers -- and closure on what happened to their loved ones aboard that flight -- very soon.
