Wife of missing Briton 'not giving up hope'

The wife of a British man who was on an Air France flight that disappeared after leaving Brazil, has told the BBC that she is "not giving up hope" of his return.

Patricia Coakley from Whitby said her husband, Arthur, who had been working in Brazil, had been due home on an earlier flight, but was moved onto flight AF447 as that flight was full.
