An Austrian national thought to have been aboard the plane that disappeared off the coast of Vietnam early Saturday is alive and safe, an Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman revealed.
“Our embassy got the information that there was an Austrian on board. That was the passenger list from Malaysia Airlines. Our system came back with a note that this is a stolen passport,” the spokesman said, as quoted by Reuters.
The man, who was found at home by police, had his passport stolen while traveling in Thailand in 2012.
However, this was not the end of the story. An Italian ‘ghost’ passenger was also discovered, according to the Foreign Ministry in Rome.
The passenger list provided by Malaysia Airlines included Luigi Maraldi, 37, an Italian citizen. Following the document’s release, Corriere Della Sera newspaper reported that Maraldi's passport was stolen in Thailand last August.
No Italian was on board the plane, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement after referring the issue of the stolen passport to the Interior Ministry.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew members, disappeared from the radars at around 02:40 local time Saturday morning while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The plane was last traced about 120 nautical miles off the coast of Malaysia and is believed to have crashed into the sea in Vietnamese airspace.
No wreckage of the plane has been discovered so far. However, Vietnamese Air Force pilots have spotted two oil slicks off the southern tip of Vietnam, which they suspect may have been left by the jetliner's fuel.
