Venezuelan authorities intensified a search for the plane carrying fashion executive Vittorio Missoni that vanished off the country’s coast three days ago.

More than 385 people are involved in the search for the plane, which hasn’t been heard from since it went missing Jan. 4, according to a government statement. The plane was carrying Missoni, 58, the executive responsible for marketing at the eponymous Italian fashion house known for its zig-zag knitwear, as well as his partner and four others. Authorities aren’t dismissing any hypothesis, the Venezuelan government said.

Founded in the 1950s by Vittorio’s parents Ottavio and Rosita, Missoni SpA is run by Vittorio, his brother Luca and their sister Angela. With designs worn by celebrities including Madonna and Jennifer Lopez, the fashion house has expanded its store networks and diversified out of clothing by designing hotels and tableware. A lower-priced line, M Missoni, was introduced in 1998 to broaden the brand’s customer base.
