A small aircraft carrying the director of Italian fashion house Missoni has disappeared off the coast of Venezuela.

Vittorio Missoni and his wife were among six people on board the flight from the archipelago of Los Roques towards Caracas' Maiquetia airport.

The small, twin-engine aircraft disappeared mid-morning local time on Friday and has not been traced since.
