Police: 2 bags from missing plane carrying Italian fashion house CEO Missoni found in Bonaire

Police say more luggage from a missing plane that was carrying the CEO of Italian fashion house Missoni has washed up on a Caribbean beach.

Family friend Claudio Verna says authorities in Bonaire told him that the bags belonged to missing Vittorio Missoni and his wife. Verna says the bags were found Tuesday on the tiny island off Venezuela.

On Thursday, Bonaire police spokesman Hans Baltus confirmed that the two bags were from the missing plane carrying Missoni. But he declined to provide information about the bags' nametags.

The plane carrying Missoni vanished shortly after takeoff on Jan. 4 from Los Roques, a tiny archipelago that is a dependency of Venezuela.

Late last month, a bag belonging to a German tourist who missed that flight washed up in nearby Curacao.
