AA Down


Could it be the...TRIangle?




(CNN) -- Rescue crews scoured the Caribbean Sea on Tuesday for a plane that took off from the Dominican Republic en route to the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Dominican Republic Civil Aviation agency said.

Agency director Jose Tomas Perez said the flight left Santo Domingo at 4:30 p.m. Monday, and the plane later sent out a distress signal to Miami, Florida, that it was experiencing an emergency.

There were 12 people onboard, including the pilot.

The Dominican Republic Aviation Department has been looking for the plane, but rescuers haven't found any trace of it. They have sent out two helicopters and two boats searching for the flight in the hopes of a rescue.

The plane belonged to ATLANTIS Airlines.

Currently, it seems to be unclear if there were 11 or 12 people on board or the actual final destination (TURKS Islands or NYC) based on these two reports.

Wow!!!! Good catch here. I've had a few 12 person synchs pop up in the past few days.

Thanks for finding this story. Very shady indeed.
