It is now being reported that Sala sent WhatsApp messages to friends while on board the plane expressing his concern at the state of the aircraft.

According to the BBC, the Argentinian sent a voice message to family saying that he was "really scared" and that "[I'm] on a plane that looks like it's going to fall apart."

The Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman has confirmed that the player made his own arrangements, and that the club did not book the flight.

A tweet in the past hour from the Guernsey Police has confirmed that the search for the player is ongoing.

"We are searching based on four possibilities," it says.

"1. They have landed elsewhere but not made contact.
2. They landed on water, have been picked up by a passing ship but not made contact
3. They landed on water and made it into the life raft we know was on board
4. The aircraft broke up on contact with the water, leaving them in the sea.

"Our search area is prioritised on the life raft option."
