Prominent New York businesswoman, Jennifer Blumin, and her sons – three-year-old Theodore and four-year-old Phineas – were on the private twin-engine turboprop plane heading to Titusville, Florida after leaving Puerto Rico around 11 a.m. on Monday, when the aircraft lost radio contact with the control tower three hours later.
Nathan Ulrich, the 52-year-old ex-husband of actress Rae Dawn Chong, was listed as the pilot.
The plane was at 24,000 feet and about 37 miles east of Eleuthera at last contact.
