BS Young Boys' women's team captain and Switzerland global Florijana Ismaili went missing yesterday evening.

"BSC Young Boys have been informed that our player Florijana Ismaili has been missing since Saturday afternoon on Lake Como after a swimming accident", said the club in a statement.

The club says: "The police searches are still underway".

Ismaili has played for Switzerland's senior national team since 2014.

While the club said she'd been swimming, the Italian news agency Ansa reported that she dove off of a boat she'd rented with a friend and never resurfaced, according to The Associated Press.

The club adds, "We are in close contact with family members and ask for understanding that we can not make any further comment at this time".

The alarm was reportedly sounded at 4:30 pm (1430 GMT), and divers began searching the area, with no results.

The 24-year-old has been playing for BSC Young Boys women's team in her native Switzerland since 2011, while she is also the club's captain.
