Italy fashion heir feared dead in Venezuela plane crash

Italian state radio says a son of the Missoni fashion family is among six passengers on a small plane that has gone missing over islands off the Venezuelan coast.

Venezuela's Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the plane was declared missing hours after taking off Friday 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 had spent their Christmas and New Year at the resort.

The plane had two Venezuelan crew members.

The Italian radio report Saturday says among those on board are Vittorio Missoni and his wife, and two of their friends from northern Italy.
