In the sad, ongoing saga of missing Missoni patriarch Vittorio Missoni, it is being reported today that bodies were recovered from the small plane that crashed while ferrying the Italian fashion designer, his wife and their friends to Caracas, Venezuela. Three bodies have been pulled from the wreckage in the Caribbean and DNA tests have yet to be run. Meanwhile, the Missoni family has not confirmed that Vittorio's remains were found, saying, "We don't yet know anything and no members of my family have been informed that operations to recover the bodies ? were being carried out."
