A Chinese student studying in Hull is reported to be among the 239 people on board missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Yue Wenchao, 26, had moved to the UK to study at the University of Hull Business School.
The student wrote "See you in Beijing!" next to a photo of his girlfriend on microblogging site Weibo just an hour before he boarded the flight, the Straits Times reports.
Hull University told ITV News that they were "deeply concerned" the student may be among the missing passengers but refused to confirm the reports.
“We are deeply concerned to hear that Yue Wenchao, a student in the final stages of his MSc degree with Hull University Business School, may be among the passengers onboard the missing Malaysia Airlines’ flight," a statement said.
“Although we are not able to confirm these reports at this time, our thoughts are with the friends and relatives of all those affected.”
