The U.S. Coast Guard said it has located a debris field believed to be the wreckage of a Florida-bound plane with four people on board, including a prominent NY businesswoman and her two children, that went missing in the Bahamas after leaving Puerto Rico.

The coast guard has deployed a search team about 64 kilometres east of Eleuthera.

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 four people on board the plane, who are now feared dead, have been identified as Nathan Ulrich, 52, Jennifer Blumin, 40, and her two sons aged four and ten, ABC 7 reports. He notified the Coast Guard that his wife was missing, the Coast Guard said in a news release.

The Coast Guard corrected its initial information on Ulrich to say he was from New Hampshire, not New York City.

"Her family is working with investigators and we politely ask that you respect their privacy at this time", a Skylight Group spokesperson said. The communication was lost at 24,000 feet as the plane traveled at 300 knots, officials said.

"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", said Lt. Cmdr.

An online search for that company finds no business number or official website, but does list Blumin as CEO. On Tuesday, a C-130 and an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter searched, the Coast Guard said.
