BEIJING -

The girlfriend of an American aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is writing love letters to him on social media, pouring out her sorrow and hopes for a reunion as the agonizing search for the plane continues.

“Dearest love” and “Good morning, baby” begin personal posts from Sarah Bajc to Philip Wood on Facebook.

Bajc, Wood’s girlfriend of two years, lives in Beijing and was getting ready to move to Kuala Lumpur with the 50-year-old IBM executive when Fight MH370 carrying 239 people vanished.

“I’m doing my best to bring you hope and courage to continue the fight. So many people have joined in … it has become a prayer storm," she writes. "Can you feel my loving coming through to you? It is bottomless so it should be able to reach, no matter where you are.”

The posts show Bajc’s enduring hope that her boyfriend is still alive, a hope shared by many of the families of missing passengers gathered in the Chinese capital – even two weeks after the plane went missing.

Some of those family members have erupted in anger and accused the Malaysian government of a concealing what happened to the flight.

“My feeling is that they’re still alive," Bajc told NBC News last week. "I've had that feeling the whole way through."

In another Facebook letter, Bajc posts a picture of bright yellow spring crocuses and writes, “it reminds me of my childhood, and of your spirit, you can make it through this.”

And in another, a more personal note: “I hope you are able to get some rest where you are, and that they are feeding you. Any chance they include a glass of wine with dinner?”

Wood's family has also set up a Facebook page, Finding Philip Wood, as an “initiative to drive the search for all passengers of MH370.” The page as of Sunday had more than 19,000 likes.
