Maira Elizabeth Nari, the daughter of Andrew Nari, the chief steward on the missing MH370 flight, has posted several messages regarding her missing father on social media.
Sometimes hopeful, sometimes grieving, but always touching, her messages have moved the world, as each has been retweeted or favorited several thousand times.

About an hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpur flight MH370 vanished from radar screens in the early hours of Saturday, after climbing to a cruising altitude of 35,000 ft (10,670 metres).
No distress signal was sent, which experts say suggests a sudden catastrophic failure or explosion. But Malaysia’s air force chief said radar tracking showed it may have turned back from its scheduled route before it disappeared.
My dad and all the other crews, together with the passengers of MH370 must be so happy that the whole world is praying for them! :'D— . (@Gorgxous_) 9 Mars 2014
