Daughter's heartbreaking tweets to father, missing on Malaysia Airlines MH370

On the day the Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight went missing, Maira Elizabeth Nari began an emotional, inspirational and hopeful stream of messages for her father.

Her father, Andrew Nari, is the chief steward on the passenger jet that was bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur.

Nearly three days after the Boeing 777 with 239 people on board disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, no debris has been seen in Southeast Asian waters.

"God... The only thing I want is my father... Nothing, but my father. I want my father back," tweeted Mairi.

"Come home fast, dad... It's the only thing I want."

"My dad and all the other crew, together with the passengers of MH370, must be so happy that the whole world is praying for them!" she tweeted.

Maira's messages have reflect a daughter with mixed emotions - as hope, despair and frustration are voiced in her desperate tweets.

She had previously posted on Twitter how close she was to her father, describing him as her "true happiness".

"He's my true happiness. I love you through thick and thin, forever daddy."

On July 29, 2013, she posted a photo captioned: "This is my father and I & forever will be daddy's little girl."

Maira also came to the defence of the plane crew, encouraging others not to blame MH370 pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah for the incident.

"Don't you blame the pilot. It is truly a big responsibility for them as they are bringing hundreds of life behind their back," she said.

Maira's following on Twitter has jumped to over 31,000 followers as thousands inundated her with messages of support while she continues to document her battle.

"Thousands of mentions received. I feel guilty for not replying to each and everyone of you. Thank you for all your support and prayers," Maira tweeted.
