Guernsey Police have resumed their search for the missing single-turbine engine plane after it disappeared from the radar over Alderney sometime after 7pm on Monday, carrying Sala and the plane’s pilot.

Sala was travelling from his former club Nantes to Cardiff, having just signed a £15m deal to join the Welsh team.

The chief officer of Channel Islands Air Search, John Fitzgerald, has said finding the missing aircraft carrying footballer Emiliano Sala is unlikely, and that “even the most fit person” could not survive the water.

Cardiff City chairman Mark Dalman says that fans are in a “state of shock” and would “not leave a single stone unturned” while investigating.
