According to local media, the Perth-based couple's daughter Fatima was aboard the Malaysia Airlines plane en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was brought down in eastern Ukraine, where separatists are battling government forces, on July 17.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down while travelling in the Ukrainian skies on July 17. After disappearance of MH370, this is the second aviation tragedy that led to massive loss in the year 2014.

Daily Mail reports that Fatima's parents George and Angela Dyczynski took a five day trip to visit eastern Ukraine, the MH17 crash site and Pro-Russian "rebel-controlled" area. After their trip, the couple arrived at Amsterdam Airport where they were spotted with a flyer of International Astronautical Congress in Canada. The couple spoke to AAP and told the reporters that their daughter "is a speaker at the conference" being held in Toronto in September.

Fatima Dyczynski was a 25-year-old "aerospace engineer." She was reportedly a founder of a company that designs small satellites that "connect mobile phones directly to space technology." She began her career with training in "aerospace, astronautical and aeronautical engineering" and was soon going to shift to Perth to join IBM's internship program. Fatima's parents are specialists in cardiology and acupuncture.

George Dyczynski's told the reporters "there is a small possibility that something still survived."

They believe that before investigators could reach the crash site, "people of Donetsk" reached the place. They told AAP that "if somebody survived maybe" people of Donetsk "have taken them."

It is noted that Dyczynskis wants experts from "space science community" to carry out the investigation. The report states that "Dr Dyczynski believes something is amiss in the world's skies -- particularly given the disappearance of MH370."

They said that maybe there are "other perspectives" that need to be probed in. They even feel that there could be something more than a missile that brought down the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

The report notes that the couple is prepared to take legal action against anyone who says that their daughter passed away in the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 tragedy, without presenting evidence. Furthermore, it is reported that the couple "plans to stay in Amsterdam for two or three days" before going back to their home in Australia. Dyczynskis believe that involvement of space scientists could avoid such tragedies in future.

"We still think she is alive so today we fly to Donetsk and we find her" Fatima's parents told The Australian at the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam on July 24.  The report noted that the Fatima is the "only child" of her parents, who are seeking evidence suggesting their daughter did not survive.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it is thought to have been shot down by Buk missile. The airliner was carrying 298 people that included 283 passengers and 15 crew members.
