Authorities have intensified the search for a small plane which disappeared off the coast of Venezuela with six people on board - including the director of the Italian fashion house Missoni, Vittorio Missoni.

The aircraft took off from the archipelago of Los Roques, at mid-morning local time on Friday, and soon after disappeared from radar.

No trace of the plane or its passengers has so far been discovered.
