"There's no indication of significant adverse weather at the time", Kelly said. The couple were profiled in a 2015 New York Times article after they bought a TriBeCa loft.
At the time, the aircraft was off Eleuthera, flying at a speed of 300 knots at an altitude of 24,000 feet, the Coast Guard said. Officials say the plane disappeared from radar near the Bahamas on Monday morning. A Coast Guard cutter was dispatched to the area and was expected to arrive later Tuesday to assist with the search.
