For over a week Emiliano is missing Sala. The family of the Argentinian striker has not given up hope, however, that he can still be found alive. Through the Crowdfunding platform, Gofundme came at a fundraiser four days over 360'000 Euro (as at 29. January, at 13.00) to launch a private search. This is already on the run on Sunday.
Sala was on Monday evening, 21. January, to have been in a small plane on the way from Nantes his new employer to Cardiff, as the machine over the English channel disappeared from Radar. Consequently, the authorities had searched in vain for the 27-year - old's professional footballer and the pilot. On Thursday evening, the search was discontinued on the grounds that the chances of Survival of the two men were "extremely low".
The hopes of Salas members rest on one man: David Mearns. The marine scientists since Sunday doing everything it can to find the missing propeller machine in front of the channel island of Guernsey, as the "Mirror" and other British media reported. The 60-Year-old is specialising in deep sea Search and salvage operations. He founded Blue Water Recoveries Ltd., the in the deep-water historic shipwrecks tracking. Since the mid-90s, he has localized according to their own data around the globe for 24 large ship wrecks.
underwater vehicle and a sonar device
Mearns has a highly complex technique, to locate wrecks on the sea floor. Among other things, a come in search of traces of the Piper PA-46 Malibu, Sala and the English pilots Dave Ibbotson (59) under-water vehicle, a highly sensitive sonar unit and underwater cameras. According to "Mirror" the addiction of the native Americans with his Team around the island group of Les Casquets. There, the sea floor is about 60 metres depth.
Should find Mearns and his team of experts to the wreck of the aircraft, could provide this knowledge about the cause of the crash. Currently, the theory is circulating that the wings of the small machine could be icy when flying over the English channel and the Pilot could have lost control of the Piper. At the time of the disappearance ruled in the Region of bad weather conditions.
Mbappé to have co-sponsored spoken 30'000 Euro
The private search to Sala have football stars. Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona had openly called for a continuation of the search of her missing compatriot. Messi donated to Argentine media, according to a amount. The amount of the donation is not known.
French, English and Spanish media published on the other hand, what sums should have spoken to other footballers. Accordingly, the world champion Kylian Mbappé (Paris Saint-Germain) donated around 30'000 euros, while his Club-mate Adrien Rabiot involved, apparently, with 25'000 Euro. Ilkay Gündogan (Manchester City) should have given 2000 euros and Corentin Tolisso (Bayern Munich) 1000 Euro. Over 4600 people contributed to the six-digit amount of came together.
pilot exchange prior to Free-flight
in the Meantime, it seems clear, is why increased the Argentines in the ill machine. Player's agent Willie McKay gave the BBC the chat history between Sala and his son, Jack McKay, in Cardiff and in the Organisation of the accident flight was involved. This shows that Sala expressed the urgent desire, after the contract signature in Cardiff (it took place on Saturday, 19. January; Sala had changed for 17 million euros from FC Nantes to Cardiff City) to be able to, once again, back to Nantes, fly. He flights considered, apparently, the possible Connections with the line, but then an offer from his future club colleague Jack McKay.
Sala was made a free flight, almost as a gift for his move to the current third-to-last in the Premier League. When the Argentines asked on Saturday evening, Jack McKay, how much the flight will cost, he replied: "Nothing. He (David Henderson; Red.) says it costs nothing, as long as you help me, to shoot the goals." What Sala "Hahaha. But with pleasure" responded.
David Henderson has flown in accordance with the player's agent Willie McKay "to us and many other players are already a countless number of times by Europe". Henderson is named by British media as the owner of the plane, and was apparently planned initially as a Pilot. Just before the Start he had passed, however, Dave Ibbotson. "We had no influence on which machine or which Pilot takes the flight, and want to make clear that the plane belonged to us," Willie McKay, has any debt.
