Transcript for Missing Malaysian Plane: News of Debris Has Strong Impact on Families
George, frustrating for all, especially for the families when you think it's been almost two weeks and the families of the passengers and crew members standing by for any new information about their loved ones. ABC's bob woodruff is on the scene in Kuala Lumpur right now. Good morning, bob. Reporter: Robin, as you know, these family members have been waiting so long to get a little bit of information and, of course, like the rest of us, this morning they did get this indication maybe this plane is out there in the sea so I went to the hotels to see how they're handling all of this but sadly their emotions are still very much in the air. This morning, the families mostly kept to themselves, outside their hotel rooms slumped over at times unwilling to talk. Just waiting for news hoping their loved ones will be found alive. Malaysia's minister of transportation told them today that the sighting is credible but just not clear yet. For the families around the world, the one piece of information that they want most is the information we just don't have, the location of mh370. Reporter: This man's 29-year-old son is an engineer, a passenger on the plane much he has lived in this hotel for almost two weeks. He says, he can take anything now. "I accept it whether it's good or bad news," he told us "I can take it whether there are any survivors or not". New and credible information came to light. Reporter: When Australia's prime minister broke the news the media poured in around the families. At this hotel in beijing, family members were escorted out to keep away from the cameras and reporters. While this waiting continues, the prayers are still streaming in from people around the world. At Kuala Lumpur's international airport, the travelers are still signing the wall of prayer, just hoping for something soon. Now the question is, let's just say that debris is the plane, the family members told us that that's not the answer that they need. What they really want to know is what has happened to the passengers inside that plan? What's happened to their loved ones? That is the answer they really want to know.
