KELLER, Texas -- The family of Philip Wood says the IBM employee was on board the Malaysia 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.
Two other American citizens also were on board flight MH370.
