Small Plane Disappears Near the Bahamas

17 May 2017

The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a missing aircraft off of the Bahamas that was suppose to have landed in Florida on Monday.

Jennifer Blumin and the boys were reported missing on Monday after their small plane was listed overdue in Titusville, Fla., authorities said.

Watch standers with the Coast Guard Seventh District Command Center received a report from Miami Air Traffic Control at 2:10 p.m. on Monday regarding lost radar and radio contact from of a MU-2B airplane approximately 37 miles east of Eleuthera.

"Search for survivors continues", the Coast Guard said in a tweet.

Blumin is the CEO of the Skylight Group, a celebrated event venue development and management firm that's scored write-ups in The Observer and the NY Times.

Pilot Nathan Ulrich, 42, who the Daily News describes as Blumin's "partner", was also onboard.

Bob Corker, the Republican head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called the allegations "very, very troubling" if true. The president has broad authority to declassify government secrets, which makes it unlikely Trump broke the law.

The Coast Guard corrected its initial information on Ulrich to say he was from New Hampshire, not New York City. The plane was flying at 24 thousand feet and about 300 knots when air traffic control lost contact.

"Her family is working with investigators and we politely ask that you respect their privacy at this time", the company said.

"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", said Lt. Cmdr.

"We can confirm that the plane carrying Jennifer Blumin and members of her family has gone missing after taking off from Puerto Rico yesterday", a company official said in an email statement.

The Coast Guard launched a search by air and water.
