The plane took off from Monterrey, Mexico, at 3:15 a.m. and lost contact with air-traffic controllers about 60 miles away. The plane was scheduled to arrive in Toluca about an hour later. Rivera, 43, had a concert in the city Saturday night.
A Long Beach, Calif., native, Rivera released her debut album in 1999 and has since sold 20 million albums worldwide. The singer-songwriter, also known as Diva of the Banda, is best known for songs such as "La Gran Senora" and "De Contrabando." Rivera began starring in her own reality show, I Love Jenni, last year on Telemundo's mun2 network which was currently filming its third season. Rivera signed a deal with ABC last month to star in her own multi-camera family comedy pilot called Jenni, starring the singer as a middle-class Latina woman struggling to raise a family and run a family business.
Rivera, who filed for divorce from baseball player Esteban Loaiza in October after two years of marriage, is survived by five children.
