KELLER, Texas — The family of a North Texas man who was aboard the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing over the South China Sea says they saw him about a week ago when he visited home.

"There is a shock, a very surreal moment in your life," James Wood says. He is the brother of Philip Wood, one of three Americans who were on the Boeing 777. Woods spoke via telephone from the family*s home in Keller, Texas.

Philip Wood was an IBM executive, and visited Keller last week before being relocated to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from Beijing, where he'd worked for two years.

James Wood says the family's Christian faith is keeping them together.

"We are one family, there are 240 other families. Our hearts go out to them," he says.
