A New York City event designer and her two sons are missing off the Atlantic coast, the U.S. Coast Guard said Tuesday.

According to NBCMiami.com, the twin-engine MU-2B was flying east of Eleuthera, an island in Bahamas, Monday when air traffic control in Miami lost radar and radio contact at 2:10 p.m. local time.

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 alarm was raised after the plane, which left from Puerto Rico in the afternoon, never arrived at its destination in Titusville, Florida.

The people on board the plane were identified as Jennifer Blumin of NY and Nathan Ulrich of Lee, New Hampshire along with his two sons.
