Families informed through text that all lives were lost on MH 370


(CNN) -Family members of passengers on MH Flight 370 learned all lives were lost through a text.

The message from Malaysia Airlines read:

"Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia's Prime Minster, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the southern Indian Ocean."

Malaysia Airlines also held an in-person briefing and made counselors available to family members.

The text, however, was sent before the formal briefing.
