CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela's attorney general says divers have been searching since the weekend for the bodies of the CEO of the Italian fashion house Missoni and others missing in a January plane crash in the Los Roques islands.
Luisa Ortega said in a statement Thursday that authorities would meet with relatives of the missing on Monday to offer details. She also tweeted about the search but without mentioning occupants of the plane, whose wreckage was located in June.
Ortega's statements came after the newspaper El Universal said the bodies of five of the plane's six occupants had been retrieved, including that of Missoni CEO Vittorio Missoni.
His family issued a statement saying it had no official word on bodies recovered. Missoni was lost with his wife, two friends and two plane crewmen.
