(Newser) – The first sign of debris from a missing plane that was carrying the CEO of Italian fashion house Missoni has surfaced in the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao. A German tourist found a bag from the plane, which vanished shortly after takeoff on Jan. 4 near Venezuela, an official said. Curacao lies about 200 miles west of the resort islands of Los Roques, where the plane departed for Caracas. The bag didn't belong to fashion exec Vittorio Missoni. Instead, it belonged to an Italian who was supposed to be on Missoni's flight but missed it.
