Family says Texas man on missing Malaysian plane

KELLER, Texas >> The family of Philip Wood says the IBM employee was on board the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 that went missing over the sea while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, China.

Les Williams, a family friend, says Wood was on board the plane but declined to elaborate, saying the family will issue a statement Monday.

Williams spoke Saturday from the Keller, Texas, home of Aubrey Wood, the passenger’s father. A LinkedIn profile that Williams says belongs to Wood, says he is a Technical Storage Executive at IBM Malaysia.

Flight MH370, a Boeing 777 airplane, was last seen on radar at 1:30 a.m. (1730 GMT Friday) above the waters where the South China Sea meets the Gulf of Thailand. Two other American citizens also were on board flight MH370.
