Since January 4th, the fashion world has been holding its breath as crews search for the missing plane of Italian designer, Vittorio Missoni.

Venezuelan pilot Enrique Rada told press that he was flying his own plane near Missoni’s and saw the aircraft enter “an aggregation of clouds” where it may have been “hit by a bolt of lightning.”

According to WWD, the plane carrying Missoni and several other passengers disappeared shortly after takeoff at Los Roques, headed for Simon Bolivar International Airport in Maiquetia.

Vittorio’s eldest son Ottavio Junior took to his Twitter page yesterday (January 6) to beg followers, “Please help us find my father." Missoni’s niece Margherita Maccapani also posted a message that read, “We pray. We believe. We won't stop until we #findvittoriomissoni !!!!!.”
