The wreckage of a plane believed to be carrying singer Jenni Rivera was found in Mexico on Sunday (09Dec12) with no survivors.
The Mexican-American star was on a private flight from the northern Mexican city of Monterrey on Saturday night (08Dec12) when the Learjet 25 disappeared.
The aircraft has now been discovered in Nuevo Leon state, with civil aviation chief Alejandro Argudin telling Mexican media the plane was "totally destroyed" and the wreckage scattered over a wide area.
Argudin told reporters, "The information we have is this: there is not a single survivor."
The 43-year-old singer, who is also a judge on the Mexican version of hit show The Voice, had been travelling to the city of Toluca.
Officials will now launch an investigation to identify the remains of the plane and its passengers, including two pilots, Rivera's publicist, lawyer and make-up artist.
Rivera's career was on the up - she recently won two Billboard Mexican Music Awards, was in the second season of her popular reality series I Love Jenni and had played for thousands of fans in Monterrey on Saturday.
Speaking at a press conference after the gig, the mum-of-five had opened up about her heartbreak following her recent divorce from baseball star Esteban Loaiza.
She said, "I can't get caught up in the negative because that destroys you. Perhaps trying to move away from my problems and focus on the positive is the best I can do. I am a woman like any other and ugly things happen to me like any other woman. The number of times I have fallen down is the number of times I have gotten up."
Rivera announced in October (12) she was splitting from her third husband Loaiza after two years of marriage.
