The details are a bit confusing; though we reported that the missing plane had been recovered in June, new reports state that bodies have only just now been discovered, and are reportedly being named as those of Vittorio Missoni, his wife Maurizia Castiglioni, and their friends, Guido Foresti and Elda Scalvenzi. They were found with seatbelts still fastened, which suggests that they were still inside the aircraft.
Though the plane originally held six people–Missoni, Castiglioni, Foresti, Scalvenzi, and two crew members–only five remains are reported as being found.
We’ve received the following joint statement from the Missoni, Castiglioni, Foresti and Scalvenzi Families:
With regard to the news distributed in the media this morning relating to the possible recovery of bodies off shore at Los Roques, where previously the wreck of the plane YV2615BN-2A which disappeared on January 4th was found, the Missoni, Castiglioni, Foresti and Scalvenzi Families would like to state they have not received any official and detailed communication connected to this.
