There is new information on the search for a plane that went missing near the Bahamas Monday afternoon, carrying a Westchester County native, her two young children and the pilot.

The U.S. Coast Guard confirms that debris has been found in the area where investigators are searching for 40-year-old Jennifer Blumin, her two boys, ages three and four, and the pilot, 52-year-old Nathan Ulrich of Lee, New Hampshire. However, they have not said whether or not that debris is connected to the missing plane.

The U.S. Coast Guard say the debris was found in the search area, about 15 miles east of the island of Eleuthera.

The twin-engine plane's last location was reported to be east of that island, traveling at about 24,000 feet when air traffic control in Miami lost radar and radio contact with the plane. This area is known as the Bermuda Triangle.

The plane departed from Puerto Rico and was heading to Titusville on Florida’s northeast coast when it went missing.

Public records show Blumin, a Tarrytown native, is the CEO of the Skylight Group, a New York City-based company that provides event space for the fashion industry. Blumin owns a loft in Tribeca and a home on Long Island.

The Coast Guard is still investigating the origin of the debris found in the search area.
