News story mentions a mayday call, but doesn't seem to be in the audio. Any idea why not?

Attached is the New York Departure audio from this incident. N19MT was handed off to 135.9 (Kennedy Initial Departure position) and then to the next sector which is the LaGuardia Departure position (120.4). This audio is not silence removed.

While I was listening to it, I went ahead and removed the unrelated stuff.  The ceiling was 300', and he was on a left base in the clouds, so it would have been a nearly impossible landing breaking out that low.  My condolences to the pilot and passenger and their families.

The audio is heartbreaking. Pilot seemed overwhelmed. So sad. 300' ceilings at night ... a very tough situation.
