It’s been a cloudy weekend for the Missoni clan, as the plane that carried Vittorio Missoni, commercial and marketing director for Missoni fashion house, has been missing since Friday in Venezuela. The plane took off from Los Rogues to its destination Maiquetia, but disappeared from radar after 10 nautical miles. The plane never arrived at its destination.
Aboard the small twin-engine airplane were Missoni, his wife Maurizia Castiglioni and their couple friends plus two crew members. Vittorio Missoni along with his siblings, Luca and Angela, owns the fashion house which was founded by their parents Ottavio and Rosita Missoni.
Angela Missoni told La Repubblica, an Italian newspaper:
“Our hope is that he is still alive. We want to hope because for us it is important.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Missoni family.
