'I'm Safe': last status update of young Iranian

The Facebook's last status update of Pouria Nourmohammadi, one of Iranian travelling with stolen passport on missing MH 370, said he was "feeling excited."

The Time online reported the 19-year-old Iranian had good reason to be: he was embarking on the first leg of a flight that would ultimately take him to Germany where his mother was waiting to help him begin a new life.

His flight; Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing early Saturday morning with all 239 people on board. Four days later, no trace of the Boeing was found despite massive search operation by nine countries.

Nourmohammadi had earlier hinted he would be going on a long, life-changing trip. "Because of some problems I will deactivate my account. Friends, seriously, if I've done any of you a bad turn, forgive me because maybe …" he posted on his Facebook page on Feb. 24.

It was only when he started posting pictures of himself in Malaysia at popular Kuala Lumpur landmarks like the Petronas Towers that some of his friends realized he had left Iran.

"So you've gone as well?" wrote one on March 4. "Will you ever return?" "No," replied Nourmohammadi.
