US Coast Guard reports small plane overdue in Bahamas

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 twin-engine turboprop MU-2B, manufactured by Mitsubishi, departed Puerto Rico around 11 a.m. Monday and was scheduled to arrive in Titusville, Fla., according to the Coast Guard.

The people on board the plane were identified as Nathan Ulrich and Jennifer Blumin of NY, along with her 4-year-old and 10-year-old sons. What had been a search for a missing plane is now a search for survivors, it said.

Also, the Coast Guard Cutter Bernard C. Webber was assisting, along with the Customs and Border Patrol and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, the Coast Guard said. The couple were profiled in a 2015 New York Times article after they bought a TriBeCa loft.


Blumin is CEO for Skylight Studios, a company that designs spaces for events.

At the time, the aircraft was off Eleuthera, flying at a speed of 300 knots at an altitude of 24,000 feet, the Coast Guard said.

"Her family is working with investigators and we politely ask that you respect their privacy at this time", a Skylight Group spokesperson said.

Nathan Ulrich, 52, of Lee, New Hampshire, was listed as the pilot of the plane, which is owned by Blumin. Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Ulrich's father told the tabloid they're expecting to hear from the Coast Guard at 5 p.m. this evening.
