KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- According to reports, three US citizens and one infant were on board a missing flight traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, China on Friday.
Malaysia Airlines said that it has lost contact with Flight MH370, carrying a total of 227 passengers and 12 crew members. Malaysia Airlines tried to contact the missing flight by various means after a control tower in Subang, Malaysia, lost contact with the aircraft. It disappeared from radar "in airspace controlled by Vietnam in the early hours of Saturday morning," China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
Malaysia Airlines Vice President of Operations Fuad Sharuji told CNN there are a number of false reports surrounding the fate of Flight MH370. He dismissed the reports as untrue. "We don't know where the aircraft is right now," he said.
