A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members went missing in the area near the South China Sea on Saturday as it flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and was presumed to have crashed. 

There were no reports of bad weather and no sign why the Boeing 777-200ER, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent engines, would have vanished from radar screens about an hour after it took off. By nightfall in the region, there were no signs of the plane or any wreckage, some 17 hours after it went missing.

A large number of planes and ships from several countries were scouring the area where the plane last made contact, about halfway between Malaysia and the southern tip of Vietnam.

As the world reacts to the surprising fact that the plane has still not been found, many people are taking to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to shout out their support for the still missing crew and passengers.
