Surabaya, Indonesia (CNN) - A woman grieving for her brother and his family. Two teenage girls looking for their parents. A woman hoping her fiance is still alive.
They are among the distraught families of passengers and crew on AirAsia Flight QZ8501 who are gathering at airports in the region, hoping that their relatives are safe. The plane carrying 162 people disappeared Sunday morning traveling from Surabaya to Singapore.
Oei Endang Sulsilowati and her daughter arrived at the Juanda international Aiport in Surabaya looking for news of her brother, Oei Jimmy Sentosa Winata, his wife and their 13-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter.
"We saw what had happened on the television, and we are coming here to find out what is happening," Sulsilowati said.
