According to the Telegraph, the four were aboard a small airplane, flown by Ulrich, when they disappeared from air traffic control radar off the coast of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.

'We are still searching and that search is going to go on through the night and into tomorrow, ' Kelly said.

Mr Ulrich's father told The New York Post through tears, "I'm afraid it's a little hard to talk about it". "Our prayers and thoughts are with the Blumin family and James Ramsey in this hard time".

It vanished 37 miles east of the Bahamas - part of the Bermuda Triangle. We have nothing other than they're still searching and haven't found any definitive evidence of any kind one way or the other. The plane disappeared from radar at about 1:30 p.m., according to a statement by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Researchers from the Arctic University of Norway told the Sunday Times: 'Multiple giant craters exist on the sea floor in an area in the west-central Barents Sea ... and are probably a cause of enormous blowouts of gas.

Coast Guard aircraft are now searching along with Customs and Border Patrol and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force.

Ms Blumin and her two sons have been missing since Monday.

The pilot's brother, Walter Ulrich, 48, of Manhattan said he's trying to remain optimistic.

Blumin was founder and CEO of Skylight Group, which provides event space around New York City, specializing in the fashion industry. According to neighbors in Lee, Ulrich co-owned Xootr, a company that manufactures kick scooters and folding bicycles.
