Famed Missoni Fashion House is reportedly missing off of the coast of Venezuela in a small plane carrying six people which one will be Vittorio Missoni according to Interior Minister Nestor Reverol Torres.
CNN reports: The search for the missing aircraft continued Saturday, an Italian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
Missoni confirmed in a statement that Vittorio Missoni, son of fashion house founders Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, was on the plane with his wife.
“The small plane they were traveling on has disappeared. This is all the information currently available,” the company statement said.
Vittorio Missoni, 58, runs the company with his siblings, Luca and Angela.
The plane was carrying four Italian nationals who were on vacation, Reverol said in a statement Friday. The Venezuelan Interior Ministry identified the two other Italians as Guido Foresti and Elda Scalveuzi. A pilot and co-pilot also were on board.
The plane left Los Roques, an archipelago and resort, Friday morning bound for the international airport outside Caracas, about 90 miles away, Reverol said.
Italian authorities are in touch with their Venezuelan counterparts and the families of those missing, said a spokesman in the Italian Foreign Ministry’s media office.
