Chinese family makes contact with missing passenger's phone

Beijing - The family of a Chinese passenger missing on flight MH370 have made contact with his mobile phone and Malaysian authorities are trying to use the signal to locate the plane, Chinese state television reported on Sunday.

Beijing Television said it also called the man’s mobile phone and appeared to connect with it before the call was cut off.

The Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777-200 plane disappeared early Saturday as it was carrying 227 passengers, most of them Chinese, and 12 crew to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.
