Update: Missoni Plane May Have Been Found

WWD is reporting a turning point in the search for the plane carrying Vittorio Missoni that went missing a week ago.

Italy's wire service Ansa received a report from Caracas, Venezuela that a blip on the Venezuelan Army radar "can identify the location" where the twin-engine plane "may have suddenly lost altitude" en route from the Los Roques archipelago to Caracas on Jan. 4.

Ansa attributes the assertion to the Italian embassy in that city. "It is an area where the ocean floor reaches a depth of 2,000 meters, considered too many for the instrumentations momentarily available," the Italian embassy said.

"The Venezuelan and Italian authorities are coming to an agreement to continue the search beyond the expected eight days, focusing resources on a defined area and through means that may be more useful."
