Missoni Plane Found After Almost 6 Months

In this undated photo provided by Venezuela's Ministry of the Interior and Justice Press Office, a plane that went missing sits on the tarmac of the airport in Los Roques, Venezuela. Venezuela's Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the plane was declared missing hours after taking off Friday, Jan. 5, 2013 from Los Roques, a string of islands, cays and islets that is popular for scuba diving, white beaches and coral reefs. He said the plane was expected at Simon Bolivar International Airport in Caracas but didn't arrive and that the four Italian tourists aboard, including Vittorio Missoni, a top executive in Italy's Missoni fashion house and his wife Maurizia Castiglioni, had spent their Christmas and New Year at the resort. The plane had two Venezuelan crew members.

Nearly six months after a plane carrying Vittorio Missoni and his family disappeared somewhere off the coast of Venezuela, the wreckage has finally been found north of the Los Roques archipelago. According to a press release from the brand, the plane was identified by an American ship called the Deep Sea, but they haven't looked inside it yet, so they're not sure if the bodies are in there. Authorities plan to investigate the remains to find out what caused the crash.
