Police Intensifies Search For Plane Carrying Sala Based On Four Theories

The search and rescue effort for the missing plane that carried Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala is focused on a scenario whereby those on board made it to a life raft after landing on water.

Sala, who was confirmed as Cardiff’s record signing on Saturday after opting to leave Ligue 1 side Nantes, was on a private aircraft that disappeared near the Channel Islands on Monday, the French Civil Aviation Authority confirmed.

Following a search throughout Tuesday, Guernsey Police stated that “the chances of survival are at this stage, unfortunately, slim” if the aircraft did land on water.

The resumption of search activity was confirmed at 07:30 GMT on Wednesday, with two planes searching a targeted area.

Guernsey Police went on to outline that four possible outcomes were guiding the operation, including those on board not making contact after either landing elsewhere or landing on water and being picked up by a passing ship.

Listing the other theoretical outcomes, the police update continued: “3. They landed on water and made it into the life raft we know was on board.

“4. The aircraft broke up on contact with the water, leaving them in the sea.

“Our search area is prioritised on the life raft option. More updates as information becomes available.”

Floral tributes have been laid outside Cardiff City Stadium, while Nantes supporters staged a vigil in Sala’s honour on Tuesday evening.

Nantes’ Coupe de France fixture against Entente SSG, which was set to be played on Wednesday, has been postponed.

    Really really sad story. My thoughts and prayers are with this player’s loved ones at what must be difficult time.

      A very difficult and sad story. May the family find peace in this grieving times

       
  • This is a sad tragedy. I know there is no good tragedy but some are sadder then some. What want to know is this: was the small plane sound and who made the booking? I read from Washington post that he send a WhatsApp message to his parents that he was scared because the plane looks like coming apart. Then he vanished. Again such an important player of £15000000 was left to travel on his own? What is Cardiff role in all of this? Will Rinaldo, Messi, Hazard, Kane, Neymar, Suarez, Aguerro be treated shabbishly? This world is wicked.
