Authorities searched in the Bahamas on Tuesday for a small overdue plane with four people from the USA on board, including a prominent NY businesswoman and her two children.

The airplane departed Borinquen, Puerto Rico, at approximately 11 a.m., Monday, and also became overdue after failing to arrive in Titusville, Florida.

U.S. Coast Guard officials say the twin-engine MU-2B was carrying Jennifer Blumin, 40, a local event space designer, and her two sons ages 10 and 4.

A Coast Guard airplane, helicopter and cutter were searching for the missing plane.

The search area is about forty miles off the coast of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where the plane's last radio contact occurred.

The White House has not explained further. "To date, there has been no evidence of collusion", Burr said in a statement. Rosenstein has told officials he was unhappy with the manner in which the Comey firing took place.

"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 statement from Skylight Group read.

Blumin owned the plane through a consulting company she owned, according to New York State and aviation records.

"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", Kelly said. "Her family is working with investigators and we politely ask that you respect their privacy at this time", Skylight said.

Nathan Ulrich, 52, of Lee, New Hampshire, was listed as the pilot of the plane, which is owned by Blumin. Communication was reported to be lost at 24,000 feet with a speed of 300 knots.

The Coast Guard launched a search by air and water.
