Authorities are searching for Jennifer Blumin, a fashion world figure of New York, her 2 young sons and Nathan Ulrich, her pilot boyfriend. The air traffic control in Miami lost radio contact with the plane that was coming from Puerto Rico and never made it to its destination in Titusville, Florida.
