With no answers to the question of what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, some relatives of the missing passengers are claiming to have made contact with devices belonging to their loved ones.

Relatives claim some passengers' cellphones are ringing when called, and one instant messaging service is showing passengers' phones still online, the Washington Post reported.

One of the most eerie rumors came after a few relatives said they were able to call the cellphones of their loved ones or find them on a Chinese instant messenger service called QQ that indicated that their phones were still somehow online.

A migrant worker in the room said that several other workers from his company were on the plane, including his brother-in-law. Among them, the QQ accounts of three still showed that they were online, he said Sunday afternoon.
