Italian news sources are reporting that a plane wreck has been found on the island of Curaçao. Authorities are investigating whether it may be that of the small aircraft carrying Vittorio Missoni, three fellow passengers, and two crew members that disappeared off the coast of Venezuela in early January.
The BN-2 Islander was carrying the Missoni chief executive and his companions between the archipelago of Los Roques and the capital city of Caracas when it went off the radar shortly after taking off, and has not been located since. A bag that was stowed aboard the plane was likewise found on Curaçao less than one month ago, while two others bearing the passengers’ identification tags were found on the nearby island of Bonaire last week.
The Missoni fashion show is set to walk in Milan this Sunday, February 24, but with the difficult situation at hand, it is unknown whether Missoni’s family members will forgo the event.
