Posted May 17, 2017

The Coast Guard was searching Monday for a Delray Beach woman who went missing after her catamaran capsized in the Florida Straits, about 30 miles west of Cay Sal, Bahamas.

At 2:10 p.m., air traffic controllers in Miami reported the plane was approximately 37 miles east of Eleuthera in the Bahamas when radar and radio contact was lost.

The passengers on board were identified as 40-year-old Jennifer Blumin and her two sons-one 10 years old and one four years old.

"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", said Lt. Cmdr.

The plane departed from Borinquen, Puerto Rico, at about 11 a.m. Monday and was en route to Titusville when contact was lost.
