A body has been found in the underwater wreckage of the plane carrying footballer Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson which went missing on January 21st.

The Piper Malibu plane carrying the footballer went missing two weeks ago and was found on the seabed off Guernsey, BBC confirms.

The Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed the sighting of the body:

The remotely operated vehicle (ROV) carried out a further search of the area overnight, but did not identify any additional pieces of wreckage.

Tragically, in video footage from the ROV, one occupant is visible amidst the wreckage. The AAIB is now considering the next steps, in consultation with the families of the pilot and passenger, and the police.
