No bodies were found in the wreckage but soldiers discovered 132 bags containing about 3.6 tons of the drug. The jet went down in the town of Tixkokob in the state of Yucatan, Mexico, 160 miles from beach resort Cancun.

Witnesses said they had seen military helicopters following it until it crashed Tixkokob assistant police chief Ernesto Hernandez said: "The plane was flying over the town for almost two hours. That's why we called the army."

The plane was a Gulfstream II jet capable of carrying up to 21 people.

It was registered to Donna Blue Aircraft in Coconut Creek, Florida, according to a search of its identification number on the US Federal Aviation Administration's website. But there was no company with that name listed in Coconut Creek.
