The US Coast Guard was searching for a Florida-bound plane with four people, including two children, onboard that went missing after leaving Puerto Rico Monday morning.

The passengers were identified as Jennifer Blumin and Nathan Ulrich of NY and Blumin's 4-year-old and 10-year-old sons.

"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time". It was en route from Puerto Rico and never made it to its destination of Titusville, along the northeastern coast of Florida.

Two cutters, a helicopter and an airplane have been dispatched to the area to search for Hellman.


Blumin was founder and CEO of Skylight Group, which provides event space around New York City, specializing in the fashion industry. Communication was reported to be lost at 24,000 feet with a speed of 300 knots.

The 10-seat plane is registered to Ithaca Consulting, registered to the same Southold, New York, address for Blumin and James Ramsey, according to Newsday. In a post on Facebook, the actress Rae Dawn Chong said Ulrich is her ex-husband, and she asked for "prayers to his family".

Ulrich was listed as the pilot but it was not known who was flying it at the time, Kelly said. Ulrich's father told the tabloid they're expecting to hear from the Coast Guard at 5 p.m. this evening.

Assisting the Coast Guard in the search, which began by air on Monday, were the Royal Bahamas Defense Force and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. "I love him", she said.
