After another day of coming up short on finding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the Australia's Prime Minister said in a press conference that authorities owe it to the world to find the ill-fated plane.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott took to the podium to show the world that the failed search attempts to find the missing airliner did not shake his resolve. He told the press:

"If this mystery is solvable, we will solve it. But I don't want to underestimate just how difficult it is."

The disappearance of Flight 370 has perplexed search crews since the plane went missing on March 8. The flight was bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur when it disappeared from radar screens. Abbott believes that they have "absolutely overwhelming" evidence that the doomed flight crashed into the southern Indian Ocean.

Search crews are still pinning their hopes on the so-called black boxes that may contain the answers as to what happened on that fateful day. According to USA Today on March 31, the U.S. Navy has provided a black-box detector and underwater vehicle to search crews to verify the plane's black-box location.
