A small plane carrying Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera in Mexico has gone missing. Authorities in Monterrey have confirmed that the plane is MIA and that nothing and no one have been located despite a search that has been taking place for several hours as of press time. Meanwhile, the singer’s management went on record earlier today to say that nothing regarding the singer’s whereabouts or status is confirmed.

Billboard reports that the Mexico’s Civil Aeronautics authority, known as DGAC, has launched an investigation about “the alleged fall of a plane.” The LearJet left Monterrey at 3:15AM and lost contact about 16 miles form the location, which was about 10 minutes later. Search parties were dispatched at 4:40AM and were aided by a pair of helicopters and a plane.

Rivera, easily on of the most successful Latin performers working today, with her own reality show called ‘I Love Jenni’ and a deal with ABC to star in her own series called ‘Jenni,’ had a gig last night (Dec. 8) at Arena Monterrey. The singer, 43, was en route to Toluca. There were five passengers and two pilots aboard the vessel.

This all sounds utterly terrifying for Rivera, her family and her fans. PopCrush sends our thoughts and prayers out to the passengers and crew.

UPDATE: TMZ reports that Mexican officials believe they found the plane wreckage. There are said to be no survivors, though no remains have been identified. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Rivera’s family.
