The FAA confirms the Cirrus S22T plane left Wiley Post Airport and filed a flight plan to Georgetown.  However, officials say Kinsinger did not land in Georgetown, but rather continued on the same course.

FAA officials say the plane was last seen on radar about 219 miles northwest of Cancun at 15,000 feet and was headed into the Gulf of Mexico.
