Of the 227 passengers aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, three of them turned out to be American citizens. On March 8, ABC News reported that Flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Beijing, China went missing two hours into the flight and has yet to be recovered.

Others aboard the missing flight were from Canada, Britain, France, India and many other countries. Their fate is yet to be determined but search and rescue teams were dispatched and family members of those on the flight are being contacted.

According to a report by the New York Times, there is good evidence that the Malaysia Airlines flight may have crashed into the sea near Vietnam. An oil slick has been reported and as well, the flight lost contact with air control over the sea near Vietnam.

So far, no plane or passengers have been recovered. There isn't even evidence of a plane crash aside from a 12-mile oil slick in the Gulf of Thailand near Vietnam. If the plane did, in fact, crash into the sea there, it will be much easier to recover as the water is much more shallow than other parts of the Atlantic Ocean.

At this time, there have been no signs that the missing flight can be blamed on terrorism. There are no clues as to why the plane might have crashed as it had been recently inspected.
