Mexican authorities have confirmed that the private plane that was carrying Mexican-American singer, actress Jenni Rivera and six others has gone missing after take-off in Monterrey, Mexico.

Rivera was in Monterrey performing a concert and decided to leave to Toluca around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning, after the concert.  The California native was said to be accompanied by six other individuals on the Learjet.  Two of the individuals are believed to be the pilots and the other four have yet to be identified.

The 43-year-old beloved artist has had her own reality-show “I Love Jenni” and her daughter launched her own show “Chiquis ‘n Control” this summer.  Rivera is also a mentor on “La Voz de Mexico.”  However, Rivera is most known for her music and interpretation of norteño music.  She had her first number-one album in 2008 with “Jenni”. 

The mother of five and daughter of Mexican immigrants has sold over 20 million album and owns a cosmetic and clothing line. 

Mexico’s aviation ministry said the singer’s plane lost contact with air controllers shortly after take-off.  Officials from the state of Nuevo Leon are searching for the plane.
