This is so beyond awful that we're having trouble even finding the right words here.
Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera was reportedly one of five passengers on an airplane that went down shortly after its take-off this morning in Mexico, and sadly, she is now missing and feared to be dead.
According to the country's transportation ministry, the flight left from Monterrey, where Rivera had performed earlier that night, and was bound for Toluca when the plane lost contact with radar 61 miles out at 3:15am.
Along with the five passengers, there were two pilots, and our thoughts go out to all of their friends, family, and loved ones during this horrific, impossibly difficult time.
We are praying that all of them are found safe and uninjured!
