MEXICO CITY - Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera is feared dead after Mexican authorities said they found the wreckage of a plane she was traveling in on Sunday.

A spokesman for the state government of Nuevo Leon said investigators had found the remains of Rivera's Lear jet, which disappeared off the radar 62 miles (100 km) from the northern city of Monterrey at about 3:30 a.m. local time/0930 GMT.



Alejandro Argudin, director general of Mexico's civil aviation authority, said there were no survivors at the crash site in the municipality of Iturbide, south of Monterrey.

Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, minister of transportation and communications, told Mexican television so little remained of the plane that he could not yet confirm Rivera's death.
