The search for Vittorio Missoni’s missing plane continues and Venezuelan officials have all but ruled out the possibility that the Italian fashion mogul was kidnapped.

Since last Friday (January 4) the Interior Ministry has been putting forth a massive effort to find any clue regarding the airplane that disappeared shortly after takeoff that was carrying Missoni, his life partner Maurizia Castiglioni and a few others.

Vittorio’s sister Angela told press, “I am in close contact with the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs and currently in Rome for appointments and to report to the State Police the disappearance of my brother, while coordinating all the information and offers of aid that we have received from all over the world.”

“My children and our nephews and nieces are with my parents, united at this difficult time. We are all moved by the affection and help that we have had until now from all over the world and are extremely grateful to the authorities for their incessant rescue search and efforts.”
