China's foreign ministry has said its aircraft are not conducting searches over land for a missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft but it is expanding searches at sea.
Earlier in the day the chief of China's civil aviation authority said that searches would be broadened to include land areas.
Michael Schumacher's family say they believe the seven-time world champion will "win this fight" following a skiing accident last year.
The racing driver, who suffered a severe head injury while skiing off-piste in the resort of Meribel in France last December, remains in an artificially induced coma.
His agent Sabine Kehm said on behalf of the family: "It is heart-warming to see how much sympathy his family is shown and I can say that the family is extremely grateful for it...
"We try to channel all the energies we have toward Michael and we firmly believe that this will help him. And we believe that he will also win this fight."
The spokeswoman for Michael Schumacher has said there sometimes are "small, encouraging signs" from the Formula One champion.
But Sabine Kehm added the family knows it is also time to be "very patient".
In a statement, she said: "We are and remain confident that Michael will pull through and will wake up. There sometimes are small, encouraging signs, but we also know that this is the time to be very patient.
"Michael has suffered severe injuries. It is very hard to comprehend for all of us that Michael, who had overcome a lot of precarious situations in the past, has been hurt so terribly in such a banal situation.
"It was clear from the start that this will be a long and hard fight for Michael. We are taking this fight on together with the team of doctors, whom we fully trust. The length of the process is not the important part for us"
Labour heavyweight Lord Mandelson has praised Ed Miliband for pledging a possible referendum on EU membership.
The former Business Secretary and EU Commissioner told BBC Radio 4's Today programme:

The European Union needs to reform "flexible labour markets" which allow for cheap, foreign workers to undercut British employees, a Labour MP has told Daybreak.
John Mann said Labour leader Ed Miliband was "moving in the right direction" with his announcement on his EU policy, but wanted him to go further.
"The big issue that I would like him to be spelling out and doing something on is about reforming European Union's structures, fundamentally tearing up some of the vision that some of the EU has.
"And in particular with agency workers and flexible labour markets. That idea that you can under cut British wages - that is the real issue why people have become anti-European."
India is to assist in the hunt for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, as the search is widened into the Andaman Sea.
"Malaysia and India are in contact on this since yesterday and contact points are being discussed. These contact points will ascertain what assistance is required and what India can offer," a spokesman at the Indian Foreign ministry said.
The spokesman said it had not yet been decided what area India would search in. India has a large military command in its Andaman and Nicobar islands and its navy patrols in the straits of Malacca.
A senior Malaysia Airlines's executive has said the airline has "no reason to believe" any actions by the crew caused the disappearance of the missing Boeing 777.

The search for the aircraft has been widened today to cover an area stretching from China to the Andaman Sea.
