Family members of Philip Wood, who was on the Malaysian Air Flight 370 that went missing earlier this month, still believe he is alive.

Tom Wood, one of the younger brothers, said Sunday that after a week of monitoring updates, he is more hopeful than ever for good news.

“I know he's strong. He's a strong guy and he's a smart guy and he can survive things, you know, he can survive this. He can survive this, he is surviving this,” he said.

Wood said his perspective changed over the course of the past several days.

“I thought it was over and we were just going to have to deal with it. And now it feels like there might be a good ending to this I mean we're believing there is a miracle in this,” he said.
