US-based firm's workers on plane headed to meeting

(Associated Press Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — An Austin-based technology company says its 20 employees on board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight were en route to a business meeting in China.

Freescale Semiconductor spokeswoman Jacey Zuniga said Sunday that the employees — 12 from Malaysia and eight from China —work at facilities in their respective countries that manufacture semiconductor chips.

The employees were aboard Flight MH370, which went missing early Saturday over the South China Sea.

Zuniga says the company is focusing on its employees and their families and watching for any new developments.


Freescale Semiconductor has been developing microprocessors, sensors and other technology for the past 50 years.

The company has more than 18,000 employees and operates manufacturing facilities, design centers and sales offices throughout the world.
