A construction worker who completed his contract here and was on his way home to China to see his wife and year-old son is among those missing on Flight MH370.

Hebei native Zhao Peng, 24, came to Singapore a year ago to work for Chip Eng Seng Corporation. He and two colleagues were booked on the Malaysia Airlines flight to Beijing. The two other men are Mr Wang Yong Qiang, 29, and Mr Yao Li Fei, 30, both also from Hebei.

Their flight went missing in the early hours of Saturday. At least nine workers from Singapore were on board, according to Chinese media reports.

Mr Zhao, a junior high school graduate, was a construction worker in China before coming to Singapore, said his cousin He Zheng Qiang, 31, who has worked in Singapore for five years.
