Emiliano Sala is believed to have been on a small plane that disappeared over the English Channel on Monday evening.
|Emiliano Sala had just signed for the Welsh side|
The craft was travelling from Nantes-Atlantique airport to the Welsh capital.
According to British media, the argentine forward was on board and was flying to Wales after having signed for the Premier League club during this winter transfer window Rescue helicopters and boats set out to try to find the craft, but the search was unsuccessful and wasn't helped by the atmospheric condition in the English Channel.
Guernsey s police force reported that the search started at 20:50 on Monday evening, twenty minutes after the most recent contact with the craft, and that the focus was on the area north of Alderney.
Horacio Sala , the father of the player, spoke to C5N once he'd heard the news.
I was working when I heard about it, i couldn't believe it," he said.
"I'm in despair."
