Partner of Flight 370 Passenger Responds to Potential Debris Discovery

Sarah Bajc was preparing to move to Malaysia with her domestic partner Philip Wood.

He is one of the Americans on board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.  Bajc responded to new reports Thursday that possible plane debris was spotted by satellite in the south Indian Ocean off Australia.

Bajc said after 13 days of the plane missing, this new information could be "one more lead that may or may not come true. I'm cautiously pessimistic."

Bajc holds out hope that the plane was instead taken somewhere and Wood is still alive.

When asked if she's frustrated at the communication from the Malaysian authorities and Malaysian Airlines, Bajc differentiated between the government and the private company.

She gave the airlines a bit of a pardon saying, "I think they're completely overwhelmed, the lack of communication is completely understandable."
