Breaking News: Plane Carrying Vittorio Missoni Gone Missing

The head of the family owned Missoni, Vittorio Missoni and his wife, Maurizia Castiglioni, were aboard a plane that disappeared off the radar on Friday near Los Roques, Venezuela reports WWD.

"According to Nestor Reverol, Venezuela's minister for justice and home affairs,
the small twin-engine airplane, which took off from Los Roques headed to the Simon Bolivar International airport in Maiquetia, about 13 miles from downtown Caracas, sent out its last signals about 10 nautical miles from Los Roques before disappearing."

Missoni is the 58-year-old son of Ottavio and Rosita Missoni. He and his wife were on vacation in Venezuela with four Italian friends who were on board the plane as well. The Britten-Norman BN-2 aircraft had two crew members.

A number of boats and Venezuelan Navy planes immediately started conducting the search, which was temporally interrupted during the night. It will resume today.
