A small plane carrying Vittorio Missoni, his wife and two friends along with crew members has gone
missing off the coast of Venezula.
Accoriding to New York Post,
Vittorio Missoni, 58, an owner of the family-run label famed for its zigzag knitwear, and his wife, Maurizia Castiglioni, were aboard the plane, which was missing after takeoff from the island resort of Los Roques, the company confirmed in a statement on Saturday. The plane was bound for the international airport near the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, normally a half-hour trip.
Venezuelan officials said that four passengers and two crew members were aboard.
The interior minister, Nestor Reverol, said Friday night on Venezuelan television that the plane, a BN2 Islander, took off from Los Roques at 11:29 a.m. and that its last known position was 10 nautical miles south of Los Roques, an archipelago that is a popular destination among wealthy Europeans, particularly Italians.
Prayers and positive energy to the Missoni Family during this time!
