The US Coast Guard is now conducting a search with the help of the Royal Bahamas Defense Force for four survivors after the plane they were travelling in disappeared from radar in the Bermuda Triangle on Monday. Jennifer Blumin, a prominent business woman in New York, and her two young sons – three-year-old Theodore and four-year-old Phineas – were among the four that were heading to Titusville, Florida in Blumin’s private twin-engine turboprop plane. The other traveler was the pilot, 52-year-old Nathan Ulrich, who is the ex-husband of actress Rae Dawn Chong.
Pilot Ulrich and the Blumin family left Puerto Rico at around 11 a.m. on Monday when they lost radio contact with the control tower some three hours into their journey. Their last contact was said to be at 24,000 feet and about 37 miles east of Eleuthera, a town in The Bahamas. Just yesterday at sometime before 3 p.m., a debris field was located by search crews about 15 miles east of Eleuthera.
40-year-old Blumin is the CEO and founder of Skylight Group. This is a company that does event management with a portfolio of venues that include Skylight at Moynihan Station, which has hosted New York Fashion Week shows over the years.
