Social Media Tributes Continue To Pour In For Emiliano Sala

Messi calls to resume search for missing Cardiff City player Sala

Messi calls to resume search for missing Cardiff City player Sala

Sala, who moved from French club Nantes for a reported fee of €17 million, was flying from the French city to Cardiff.

More than 120,000 euros has been raised towards a private search for missing Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala.

Adrien Rabiot has pledged over £21,000 as footballers across the world have begun to unite in funding a kickstart of another search for missing Argentine striker Emiliano Sala.

Argentina's president Mauricio Macri has joined calls by Sala's family for the search to resume.

As of Saturday afternoon, nearly €200,000 (US$228,000) had been pledged toward the target, including from players such as Manchester City's German worldwide Ilkay Gundogan.

Sport Cover's website lists Sala as a client.

More than 80,000 people have signed a petition in France, calling for the search to be resumed.

Mr Sala's sister, Romina, her partner Juan Miaz and cousin Maria Sotting flew in from Argentina to see the carpet of tributes laid outside the Bluebird's stadium where they said they believe he is still alive. "Emi and the pilot are here and we can't leave them".

"We are not going to stop looking, we are never going to stop".

Additional officers were called in to help secure Bates, who was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center for a psychiatric evaluation . The officer received three stitches above his eye and was treated or a minor concussion, police said.

"While there is the possibility, a shred of hope, we ask that you please #NoDejenDeBuscar (don't stop searching) for Emiliano", said Barcelona attacker Messi.

Among those joining calls for the search to continue are Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

Three planes and five helicopters racked up 80 hours combined flying time looking for the plane, working alongside two lifeboats and other passing ships.

Guernsey Police controversially chose to call off the search on Thursday, while authorities have stated that the likelihood of the aircraft occupants surviving the incident are "extremely remote".

Captain David Barker acknowledged the family were "not content" with the decision, but was "absolutely confident" no more could have been done.

A spokesman for Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) told AFP that his license would be reviewed as part of its probe into the plane's disappearance.

The Piper PA-46 Malibu disappeared over the English Channel with Cardiff City's new signing and Mr Ibbotson on board.

According to European Union aviation rules posted online by the CAA, a private pilot license is "for recreational flying only".
