Emotional families marked the first anniversary of the disappearance of flight MH370 Sunday as a new report said the battery on its black box locator beacon had expired, but shed no new light on the cause of the disaster.A report by an international investigative team released Sunday raised no red flags relating to the crew or the aircraft's condition to indicate any cause for the disappearance.The plane inexplicably veered from its Kuala Lumpur-Beijing route on March 8 of last year with 239 passengers and crew aboard.Sunday's report said investigators had probed a range of issues including the personal, psychological and financial profiles of the jet's captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah and his co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid, as well as the backgrounds of the 10 cabin crew.But although some suspicion had fallen on the cockpit crew, the report mentioned no evidence implicating either of them.The report, however, said civilian radar had tracked the plane for a short time after it diverted.
