Vittorio Missoni Missing After Plane Disappears in Venezuela.
Authorities in Venezuela are on a search-and-rescue mission after a plane carrying Vittorio Missoni disappeared on Friday.
The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports that Missoni, his wife Maurizia Castiglioni, another couple, and two Venezuelan crew members were leaving an island resort on Los Roques when their plane went missing. Emergency services weren't able to find the plane yesterday and halted the search overnight.
Giovanni Davoli, the Italian consul in Venezuela, told Reuters the search effort resumed Saturday morning. "They have been looking for it with helicopters and ships, but have not found anything yet," he said.
A Missoni spokeswoman said the family "has been informed by the Venezuelan consulate that Vittorio Missoni and his wife are missing, but we don't know any more."
