Emiliano Sala's plane wreckage found in English channel

Emiliano Sala

LONDON: The wreckage of the plane that vanished with the Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala on board was found within an hour of the privately-funded search starting in the sea of the English Channel.

A search boat which was hired privately by Sala’s family in Argentina
located the wreckage on Sunday morning.

The crew of the boat passed the details of the location on to government investigator, who used a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) to examine the spot.

Consequently, the family of the deceased Cardiff City striker Sala and the pilot, Davis Ibbotson, was informed by the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). It is also believed that the AAIB will recover the vessel.

However, there has been no information whether any bodies were found out.

Last week, two seat covers from the aircraft were washed up last week on the coast of France.
