Rome, November 9 - Vittorio Missoni, the CEO of
Italian fashion house Missoni, is bound to turn up after his
small plane went missing over Venezuelan waters last week, his
eldest son told Italian media Wednesday.
"My father will come back," said Ottavio Missoni. "We're
expecting it".
Vittorio Missoni, whose father founded the fashion house
famous for its colourful zig-zag knitwear, was among four
Italians on board the flight, including his wife Maurizia
Castiglioni and another couple, which went missing without
leaving a trace Friday while en route to Caracas after a holiday
on an island in the Los Roques Caribbean archipelago.
"A plane can't disappear in that way, on a short trip
without leaving any traces," added the son. "No one can convince
us otherwise unless they have proof. For this reason my brothers
and I remain convinced that any number of things could have
happened, except that the plane fell into the ocean".
Some have speculated that the small aircraft, which also
had on board two pilots, was hijacked by drug traffickers.
Weather conditions were favorable at the time the plane
went missing, but the Los Roques area is notorious for crashes.
In 2008 another small plane returning to the Venezuelan
mainland from the archipelago disappeared with 14 people aboard,
including eight Italians.
The younger Missoni said the last he heard of his father
was Thursday, when he phoned to tell him that parts for his
motorcycle had just arrived.
"Yesterday I made arrangements for them to be installed as
soon as possible," he said. "That way everything is ready for
when he gets back".
