The remains of a plane that disappeared en route from Las Vegas to Monterrey in northern Mexico have been found, a state government official said on Monday, with local media reporting that all 14 on board had died.

Mexican newspaper Reforma said the private plane had 11 passengers and three crew members on board.

The wreckage of the plane was found via aerial surveillance some 208 km northwest of the northern city of Monclova in the border state of Coahuila, said Fernando Orta of the state’s emergency services department.

Officials had not yet arrived to inspect the site, he added.

“The land is rather mountainous … so they’re going to take a while longer to arrive,” Orta said.

A photograph published on local television network Milenio showed what it said were the burnt remnants of the plane, broken into pieces, spread over charred earth.

FlightAware, an online flight tracking service, said the plane was a Challenger business jet made by Canada’s Bombardier Inc. Bombardier confirmed that the crashed plane was a Challenger 601.  

Local media reported that the passengers were returning from a weekend trip that included seeing the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez boxing match in Las Vegas

A Mexican transport ministry spokesman could not say whether there had been any survivors.
