A meticulous search, no doubt. But then they already know what happened. They shot it down.

COVER UP Iran uses BULLDOZERS to clear debris from plane crash site while accusing US of ‘big lie’ that they shot it down
By: Tom Michael, The Sun, 10 Jan 2020:
IRAN has used bulldozers to clear debris from the plane crash site while slamming the “big lie” that they shot it down.
The Ukrainian passenger jet came down hours after Tehran launched a barrage of rockets against US targets in Iraq – leading to fears jittery air defence troops targeted it by mistake.

And after Western governments accused Iran of shooting it down – something the country denies – there are now fears of a cover-up.
Iranian authorities have so far refused to release the black box flight recorders, saying they will “handle” the data themselves.
And bulldozers have now been pictured clearing away debris at the crash site.
It is feared the machines could destroy precious clues as to what really happened before international crash investigators have a chance to examine them.
Iran’s ambassador to the UK today dismissed the use of bulldozers to clear the crash site as “absolutely absurd”, Sky News reports.
What we know so far:
But the images have been verified by UK investigative website Bellingcat, whose painstaking work linked downed MH17 to Russia back in 2014.
Bellingcat investigator Giancarlo Fiorella told Channel 4 News: “Those images (of the bulldozer) we were able to geolocate to the crash site.
“I found them to be really distressing because this is potentially the scene of a crime.
“If this was a shoot-down event, you don’t want to disturb the crash site before a thorough investigation can be conducted and I’m not sure one had been conducted.”
It follows Iranian claims the two black boxes – which contain data and cockpit communications from the plane and are meant to be indestructible – had been damaged.
Iranian aviation authorities claim parts of their memory had been lost.
