Emiliano Sala Expressed Concerns About Plane In Audio Message

Emiliano Sala expressed concerned about the plane on which he was travelling from Nantes to Cardiff.

The Piper Malibu plane carrying the 28-year-old Argentinian footballer and one other individual went missing over the English Channel on Monday night.

"I'm on a plane that looks like it's going to fall apart, and I'm leaving for Cardiff," Sala said in a WhatsApp audio message reported by the Argentine media.

"If in an hour and a half you have no news from me, I don't know if they will send people to look for me, because they will not find me, you know. Dad, I'm so scared."

On Tuesday afternoon, Guernsey Police said a number of floating objects had been spotted in the water but they were unable to confirm if the debris was from the plane carrying Sala.

It was added that if the plane had landed on the water, the chances of survival were "slim".

The search for the plane resumed at 7:30am on Wednesday morning.

"Two planes are taking off and will search a targeted area we believe has the highest likelihood of finding anything, based on review of the tides and weather since it went missing," said Guernsey Police.

"Coastal areas around Alderney and off-lying rocks and islands will also be searched from the air."

On Sunday, Cardiff City had announced they had signed the striker for a club record fee from Nantes.
