Emiliano Sala: I’m in despair – father
With the help of a privately funded search led by marine scientist David Mearns, the plane carrying the missing player and pilot was found yesterday morning.
Horacio told Cronica TV. “I cannot believe it, I am in despair. My wife, my two children and some of Emiliano’s friends are there.
“I did not communicate with anyone today. I talk every day, but since my phone does not have Whatsapp, it’s hard for me to call them or for them to call me,”
David Mearns, who is leading the search team, yesterday confirmed the missing had been found and investigations into the wreckage would start soon.
Yesterday, he further went on to say: “This is about the best result we could have hoped for the families.
“But tonight they have heard devastating news and in respect of the families I won’t comment any further about what has happened.”
Meanwhile, earlier today, authorities have found a body in the wreckage of the plane, alas, it is not clear yet whether the body is that of Sala or pilot David Ibbotson
