KELLER, Texas (AP) - The family of a North Texas man who was aboard the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing 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 on the Boeing 777. Wood spoke via telephone from the family's home in Keller.

Philip Wood's confirmed LinkedIn page lists him as a Technical Storage Executive at IBM Malaysia. He visited Keller last week before relocating to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from Beijing, where he'd worked for two years.

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

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