A Boeing 767 cargo jetliner has crashed near Houston into a bay just east of the city shortly before 12:45pm (central) on Saturday. Emergency crews are responding after the jet went down into Trinity Bay, near Anahuac, Texas.

Early reports say the cargo plane had 3 crew members on board, with the Chambers County Sheriff's office saying there were no survivors. The sheriff's office posted an update to its Facebook page saying the plane has been located at the north end of the bay.

The Federal Aviation Administration also confirmed three people aboard. The plane, identified as Atlas Air Flight 3591, reportedly operating for Amazon Prime Air, was en route to George Bush Intercontinental Airport from Miami when it crashed, according to the FAA. Emergency crews are searching the water, including helicopter rescue.

The company operating the flight, Atlas Air Inc., says it transports items from "precious perishables or heavy construction equipment to arranging passenger charters for celebrities or dignitaries," according to its website.
