    a
    Anderson Cooper's show said they are notifying all the families of the passengers. It doesn't look good.

    From my link above:

    9:30am - (UNOFFICIAL) Flight MH370 has resurfaced and landed safely in Nanming, China. Early reports say that the aircraft had experienced a cockpit electronics malfunction.

    As of this moment, the flight crew and all 239 passengers onboard are believed to be unharmed as some of the crew has already informed their families of their safety.

    More updates to come.

    Please be true.

    The facebook page said 10 minutes ago they will provide regular updates.
    If it landed safely wouldn't they just say that?
    I think it's odd NO ONE else is reporting that.

    I saw that, too, Leilei. Now I am really confused. Not finding anything that corroborates a find, so I am left holding my breath and praying for a miracle still.

    Thanks for all your updates, all.
