The wreckage of the plane which killed fashion executive Vittorio Missoni has been found.

The small aircraft crashed in the Caribbean this January, killing Missoni, his wife and four others.

He was the CEO of iconic Italian fashion house Missoni.

Luisa Ortega Diaz, Venezuela’s attorney-general, made a
statement to journalists about the discovery of the plane.

“There were six people on board that plane, two pilots and four passengers of Italian nationality. The plane wreckage is 76 meters deep, meaning very close to the surface,” she said.

Earlier this year, Italy’s flight security agency said an investigation had shown that the airline that owned the plane was not fully licensed to operate.

The submerged aircraft wreckage is being recovered by Venezuelan and Italian crews.
