Emiliano Sala: 120,000 euros raised for private search

Emiliano Sala: 120,000 euros raised for private search

"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.

"We reviewed all the information available to us, as well as knowing what emergency equipment was on board, and have taken the hard decision to end the search".

Sala signed for Cardiff City from FC Nantes on Saturday, January 19, and was on his way to bolster Neil Warnock's squad in England's top-flight when the plane was reported missing.

Speaking following the announcement that the search for 28-year-old Sala and pilot David Ibbotson had been called off, Harbour Master Captain David Barker said chances of survival were "extremely remote".

"Its sole objective, through a specialised non-profit organisation, is to help the family of Emiliano and pilot Dave Ibbotson continue the search".

"We want to go and search for them", she said, during a visit to Cardiff. He further stated that: "All my strength and support to his family and friends".

Diego Maradona also posted a photograph of Sala to his Instagram account with the campaign hashtag.

"My sons, Mark, Jack and I and the rest of the McKay family would like to offer our honest support for the Sala family and support their calls for the search to continue".

"The fundraising appeal launched late Friday afternoon enabled Emiliano Sala's relatives, via a specialised organisation, to resume research in the Channel early this Saturday morning", said a statement on the GoFundMe website.

Aguero's City team-mate Nicolas Otamendi added: "I'd like to express my sympathies to Emiliano's family, and urge the police to keep searching for the plane".

In Sala's Argentine hometown of Progreso, his father Horacio told the press on Tuesday that the wait for news "makes me fear the worst". "There's still hope to find them alive".

Cardiff City are considering their legal options as they continue to come to terms with the presumed death of club-record signing Emiliano Sala, according to a report.

McKay, who is son of agent Willie McKay, arranged for Sala to be taken on board the Piper Malibu jet straight from Nantes to Cardiff for his first training session.
