Vittorio, the head of the family-owned Missoni fashion business, has gone missing along with his wife Maurizia, as they were on a biplane that went off the radar near Los Roques in Venezuela.

The twin-engine 1968 Britten-Norman BN-2 went off the map approximately 10 nautical miles from Los Roques, where the Missoni couple spent Christmas and rang in the New Year.

The plane, which also carried another couple and two Venezuelan crew members, was heading to Simon Bolivar International Airport in Maiquetia.

The Venezuelan Navy is still searching for the plane.
