Debris found in Bermuda Triangle matches model of missing plane

A Coast Guard official says authorities believe they have found debris from a small plane that went down near an island in the Bahamas with four people on board, including two young children and a prominent NY businesswoman.

It was cruising at 24,000ft (8,000m), but lost contact with air-traffic controllers in Miami as it glided over the Bahamian island of Eleuthera.

Police in The Bahamas are searching for a plane that disappeared while carrying a New Hampshire man and three other people.

"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander Ryan Kelly, said.

Coast Guard aircrafts, Customs and Border Patrol and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force have an been enlisted to help search for the missing aircraft.

A Coast Guard cutter was dispatched to the area and was expected to arrive later today to assist with the search. Jennifer Blumin founded the Skylight group in 2004. The group specializes in re-conceiving historical spaces and converting them for high-end event use. She launched Skylight in 2004. The aircraft never made it to its final destination in Titusville, Florida. Our prayers and thoughts are with the Blumin family and James Ramsey in this hard time.

Ms Blumin and her former husband James Ramsey had just put their Tribeca loft on the market for $US3.7 million ($A5 million).

"Nathan is our beloved son, brother and uncle and we wish for resolution as the Coast Guard search continues", the Ulrich family statement said.

A number of aircraft and ships have disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the Bermuda Triangle over the years.

The winds created by the so-called air bombs are so powerful they generate 45ft high winds. At least 1,000 lives have been lost due to sinking or crashes in the Bermuda Triangle, also known as the "Devil's Triangle", over the past century. About four planes and 20 ships go missing every year on average.

The Bermuda Triangle lies in a section of the North Atlantic Ocean and covers an area of 700,000km of sea. Randy Cerveny, "The satellite imagery is really bizarre.the hexagonal shapes of the cloud formations".

Previous year new evidence suggested massive methane blowouts from the bottom of the ocean were to blame.
