According to recent news reports today March 8, the missing Malaysia flight that became stealth to airline controllers losing all contact to flight MH370 yesterday, has still not been found. Its planned destination was Beijing, China. Rescue teams continue search missions.

Search teams have started to explore the air, seas, and land hoping to find the jetliner intact and all passengers safe. Although the airline has stated, they have found no wreckage evidence, other reports indicate some possible evidence.

Oil streaks have been reported south of Tho Chu Island, with more than an 8 mile stretch of oil slicks, according to other news stations.

While families and friends anxiously wait for concrete evidence, two passengers listed on the flight, from Europe, are safe at home.

It has been confirmed that, Christian Kozel from Austria, and Luigi Maraldi from Italy never boarded the flight, although listed.

Reports indicate the Austria man had his passport stolen more than 2 years ago, while on an excursion in Thailand, said a ministry spokesman. "He was safe at home."

But the Italian name is still puzzling to authorities because the foreign ministry in Rome said, none of their Italian citizens were on that flight, regardless what the list reads.

Despite the two European inconsistencies of the passenger list, and reports of evidence, Malaysia Airlines said in a press release today March 8, 2014, they are contacting family members, and continuing search efforts, since no wreckage evidence has been found.

The families of all passengers on board MH370 are being informed. The flight was carrying a total number of 239 passengers and crew - comprising 227 passengers (including 2 infants) and 12 crew members.

An international search and rescue mission was mobilized this morning. At this stage, our search and rescue teams from Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam have failed to find evidence of any wreckage.

The sea mission will continue while the air mission will recommence at daylight.

Today the investigation into what and where the flight may have gone is still underway. Terrorism has not been ruled out.

Prime Minister, Najib Razak said, every possibility is still under investigation, even terrorism, because it is "too early" to know.
