PETALING JAYA: One of the Malaysian passengers on board the missing MH370 is Singapore scholarship holder Tony Tan Wei Chew (pic), 19, a recent graduate of the republic’s St Andrew’s Junior College.
Tan was on the way to Beijing for a vacation with his parents, according to his former roommate of two years and compatriot Aaron Quek, reported The Straits Times.
Quek, also 19, added that Tan had two younger siblings who were not on the flight. Schoolmates said they last saw Tan on Monday when they went back to school to receive their A-level results.
Quek, who attended St Andrew’s Junior College with Tan and shared a room in the school’s hostel with him, said Tan did think about applying to universities in the United States.
Tan came to Singapore on a scholarship when he was 15, and attended Catholic High School together with Quek.
