LDS Author's Son Goes Missing in the Bermuda Triangle

LDS Pulitzer Prize–winning author Laurel Thatcher Ulrich's son, Nathan Ulrich, went missing in the Bermuda Triangle on Monday. 

Nathan Ulrich was piloting a plane with Skylight Group CEO Jennifer Blumin and her two sons as passengers and was en route to Titusville, Florida, when the plane went missing. 

The MU-2B plane left Borinquen, Puerto Rico, at about 11 a.m. on Monday, but the Miami Air Traffic Control contacted Coast Guard Seventh District Command Center at 2:10 p.m with a report that they had lost radar and radio contact from the plane, according to a Coast Guard press release

On Tuesday at around 3:30 p.m., the Coast Guard found a fuel sheen and a debris field 15 miles east of Eleuthera, Bahamas, that were confirmed to be from the MU-2B airplane, according to the press release. 

After searching for Nathan Ulrich, Jennifer Blumin, and her sons among the debris, search efforts were suspended the on Thursday. 

"This was a swift and significant loss and its impact has reverberated through everyone that participated in the search," said Christopher Eddy, search and rescue mission coordinator, in a press release on Thursday. "Our hearts and prayers go out to all of the families involved."
