Authorities searching for missing Cardiff footballer Emiliano Sala have found a body in the wreckage of the plane, air accident investigators confirmed on Monday, February 4, 2019.

The wreckage of the plane that went missing off Guernsey while carrying Cardiff’s record signing and pilot David Ibbotson was found on the seabed of the English Channel on Sunday, February, 3, 2019.

But it is not clear at this stage whether the body discovered is that of Sala or Ibbotson.

In a statement by Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch, they said that:

“Based on analysis of ROV (underwater remotely operated vehicle) video footage, the AAIB investigators on board the vessel concluded that the object is wreckage from the missing Piper Malibu aircraft.

“Tragically, in video footage from the ROV, one occupant is visible amidst the wreckage. The AAIB is now considering the next steps, in consultation with the families of the pilot and passenger, and the police”.
