According to The Sun, Miami Traffic Control lost contact with the aircraft that was carrying the CEO of NY event management firm Skylight Group, 40-year-old Jennifer Blumin, her two sons and their pilot, 52-year-old Nathan Ulrich, at 2:10pm local time on Monday.
According to the New York Post, Jennifer Blumin, the CEO of Skylight, the NYC-based event company, was flying from Puerto Rico to Florida with her boyfriend and her two children, ages two and four, when the small plane they were flying in disappeared from radar over the Bermuda Triangle at around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon.
Coast Guard aircraft were searching along with Customs and Border Patrol and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force about 40 miles east of Eleuthera.
Ulrich was piloting the plane around 24,000 feet and at 300 knots when he lost contact with the ground.
"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", said Ryan Kelly, a Coast Guard spokesman.
Ms Blumin was the founder of an event management company, Skylight Group, and had just put her house on the market for more than $5m.
The Coast Guard said that searchers had found debris about 24 kilometres east of Eleuthera, Bahamas.
Ulrich is the ex-husband of Canadian-American actress Rae Dawn Chong.
Ulrich is a pilot from Lee, New Hampshire.
Blumin has listed addresses in Tribeca and Southold in Suffolk County.
"That environment, though, is sterile and has nothing to do with brand identity". Ulrich is an engineer, and the founder and co-owner of Xootr, a folding bicycle manufacturer.
"The helicopter crew was able to lower a rescue swimmer and retrieve some of the debris to transfer ashore for identification", the Coast Guard said in a statement.
The remarkable theory suggests the clouds are linked to 273 km/h "air bombs" - capable of bringing down planes and ships.
Media jumped on the reports of the missing plane, owing to the fact it had disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle, which has a history of mysterious disappearances.
