Maira Nari shares her long wait for her father's return from the missing MH370 flight.

WAITING. Maira is waiting for her father to come home.

MANILA, Philippines – When your world has gone awry, a small sliver of hope can be everything to you. This is certainly the case for Maira Elizabeth Nari, who has taken solace in social media amid tragedy. 

Maira is the daughter of Andrew Nari, head steward of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. The flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from radar screens last March 8, leaving no distress calls or wreckage despite extensive investigations. 

Under Twitter handle @Gorgxous_, Maira used the popular social networking site to voice her thoughts and hopes on the plane’s recovery. 

This was Maira’s first tweet when she discovered news of her father’s missing plane.

Soon after, she received an overwhelming amount of support from family and friends.

In one tweet she also addressed Malaysian actor Zed Zaidi, after he made a joke about the disappearance of flight MH370.

She even tweeted this selfie taken with her dad before he disappeared.

Maira also shared this photo of her father in his flight steward’s uniform.

She was also part of the throng of concerned family members who flocked to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, anxious for news on their loved ones.

After days of worrying and waiting, Maira still hasn’t lost hope.

Authorities have been searching since Saturday in the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam, with no significant updates thus far. – Rappler.com
