MH370 family member: Canceled, delayed briefings show lack of respect

(CNN) – On the one hand, son Steve Wang says he wants searchers to find debris from Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. But there's also a part of him that doesn't want that, because it would mean his mother, one of the passengers on the plane, is gone.

"She's such a nice woman, and she really loves the life, she likes to take photographs, likes to travel," an emotional Wang said.

Wang remains skeptical that the "object of interest" found off the Australian coast is from the plane.

"There are such kind of news, and such kind of objects found every day since the beginning," Wang said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

Briefings with families have been cancelled and delayed in recent days, a move Wang calls "terrible," and shows a lack of respect.

Searchers need "to make sure, to make a confirmation, whether they are searching (the) right place. Because they have been searching for a month, all of the ships, planes, not even small pieces of the plane was found," says Wang.
