Rescue efforts continue in Venezuela to find the plane of Vittorio Missoni and his wife, which vanished off the coast of Venezuela on Friday. The plane, carrying Missoni, his wife, and friends Elda Scalvenzi and Guido Foresti, was traveling from Los Roques, an archipelago, to Caracas. According to Bloomburg, close to 400 people are searching for the BN-2 Island and his family remains hopeful to find him alive.

Missoni helped grow the brand’s global influence by opening a number of stores worldwide, getting involved in the hotel industry, and being highly involved in the marketing campaign of the company.
