There were 239 people aboard the plane. Malaysian officials say radar signals show that the plane may have tried to turn back before vanishing. The flight crew did not notify ground control about a change of course. Investigators are now focusing on two passengers who were traveling with stolen passports – an Italian-issued document under the name Luigi Maraldi and an Austrian passport bearing the name Christian Kozel. Both were stolen in Thailand. MORE
