Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 people on board, disappeared on 8 March about an hour into a journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the world's greatest aviation mystery. Six months on, the loved ones of the mostly Chinese passengers derive what comfort they can going forward from what's left behind.

One woman says she can't go out without taking her missing sister's handbag with her. Another agonises over the fact that the last phone call she had with her missing husband was an argument. His tea cup stays put on a desk, now covered in dust.

Reuters photographer Kim Kyung-Hoon documented the grief and desperate hopes of some of the relatives of the missing passengers.
