After a nearly six month search, the plane carrying Vittorio Missoni, head of the fashion house, has been recovered “in the waters north of the resort of Los Roques,” according to the New York Times. The plane went missing in early January.
Vittorio’s partner, Maurizia Castiglioni, another couple and two crew members were also on board.
“The families thank the Venezuelan government and the Italian government for the effort in having made this search possible,” the Missoni company said, in a statement. “They are confident that the investigation will follow through to the ascertainment of the causes and the responsibility for the accident.”
