A bag that is believed to have been on board the same plane as missing fashion CEO Vittorio Missoni has been discovered on the island of Curaçao.
The empty bag belonged to Italian tourist Giorgio Neri, reports Italian newspaper Corriere della Ser a via WWD.
Although Neri, a fellow holidaymaker on Los Roques, was not on travelling on the same flight as Missoni - he left on a different plane a matter of minutes before them that later landed safely - his bag's presence was due to a lack of luggage space on his plane.
The bag is said to have been found by a German tourist on January 10. Once home, the tourist emailed Neri, whose contact details were on the bag. Neri then contacted the Missoni family to inform them of the finding in Curaçao, which is approximately 124 miles from Los Roques.
"They are not drawing any conclusion. This is simply another piece of an already complex puzzle," a spokesperson for the Missoni family said.
The search for Vittorio Missoni, his partner Maurizia Castiglioni, their two friends and two crewmembers continues.
