Journalists read words from board covered by written wishes from relatives during a briefing meeting given by Malaysian officials at a hotel in Beijing, China, Wednesday, March 26, 2014. Some of the wishes read, "Dear husband, you must stay strong, I am waiting for you. My dear, please be back soon." The search of the missing plan resumed Wednesday after fierce winds and high waves forced crews to take a break Tuesday. A total of 12 planes and five ships from the United States, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand were participating in the search, hoping to find even a single piece of the jet that could offer tangible evidence of a crash and provide clues to find the rest of the wreckage.

Chicago • Court documents that often precede a lawsuit have been filed by a U.S. law firm on behalf of a relative of a passenger on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
The filing in Chicago asks a judge to order Malaysia Airlines and Chicago-based Boeing Co. to turn over documents related to the possibility "negligence" caused the Boeing 777 to crash, including any documentation about the chances of "fatal depressurization" in the cockpit.
Chicago-based law firm Ribbeck Law Chartered filed documents meant to preserve evidence Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court.
They were filed on behalf of Januari Siregar, a relative of Indonesian-born passenger Firman Chandra Siregar. The filings were not clear about their exact relationship.
Boeing spokesman John Dern declined comment. Phone and email messages were left for airline officials Wednesday.
