The linked article doesn't appear to make any reference to the aircraft being missing, only that it transmitted an emergency.

It disappeared over Sea of Marmara.

No, FlightRadar24 lost it, which isn't the same thing at all.

I doubt very much that anyone who needed to know wasn't fully aware of its position at all times.
