The fate of Malaysian Airlines flight M-H-370M is, sadly, still up in the air. The Boeing 777 with 239 people on board, including 12 crew members, dropped off the radar about two hours into its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Families wait, and are said to be expecting the worst, as search and rescue operations take place. Rescue operations extend from the South China Sea to the west coast of the Pennisula.

Of the three Americans on board, one is a baby and one is confirmed to be from North Texas. Over half the passengers are Chinese nationals.

Malaysian authorities aren’t ruling out any cause for the plane’s disappearance just yet, though they say there’s no reason to suspect terrorism. Making things even more complicated — after a list of passenger’s names was released — two of those listed were carrying stolen passports from Thailand. Because of that, officals may not know the true identity of everyone who’s missing.
