#PrayForMH370 has been trending worldwide on Twitter for hours. The hashtag is being tweeted by thousands of people who are hoping for the best but expecting the worst when it comes to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. On March 8, Yahoo! News reported that an AN26 aircraft detected what appeared to be "oil slicks" in Vietnam. These oil slicks could lead authorities to the Boeing 777 aircraft that has been missing for nearly 24 hours.

Many suspect that these oil slicks will lead to the plane's wreckage but nothing has been confirmed thus far.

The Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was carrying a total of 239 passengers and crew members. On board were 153 people from China/Taiwan including one infant, 38 from Malaysia, seven from Indonesia, five from India, six from Australia, four from France, and three from the U.S.A. including an infant (via Malaysia Airlines). Other passengers were from New Zealand (2), Ukraine (2), Canada (2), Russia (1), Italy, (1), Netherlands (1), and Austria (1). Families of those on board have been contacted and according to at least one report, they have been told that there is a "crash site."

"At [Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)], the brother of a passenger says relatives are being told to bring a valid passport because they need to 'travel to the crash site'. Relatives have to be at KLIA before 6pm with valid passports for MAS to make 'travel arrangements'" (via Yahoo! News).
