You may have to glue a small, thin piece of timber over the screw hole to give the new screws some purchase. Sometimes its possible to move the hanle a couple off mm over to get to new wood on the door. Its a very common problem and sometimes a lager hole has to be made which will be hidden by the handle, to insert some timber up and inside the hollow door which is glued to the inside of the door skins. If you look at the DIY project on mending holes in plasterboard you can see how this would be achieved as the principle is the same.
