Mexican authorities have found the remains of a plane that disappeared after leaving from Las Vegas, amid reports all 14 people on board were killed, The Independent reported.

The wreckage of the plane, a Bombardier Challenger 601, crashed in the mountainous region of Monclova, while on route to the northern Mexican city of Monterrey.

The remains were found around 130 northwest of the town of Monclova. Reports said the passengers were returning after watching Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez, who defeated Daniel Jacobs at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The wreckage of the plane was found via aerial surveillance, said officials in the state of Coahuila.

“The land is rather mountainous…so they’re going to take a while longer to arrive,” said Fernando Orta of the state’s emergency services department.

The plane is made by Bombardier Aerospace, which is headquartered in Dorval, Canada. There was no immediate response from the company, reported The Independent.
