Private search for Sala underway after £200,000 raised

A new search for missing Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala has resumed after more than £220,000 (around AED1 million) was raised to fund the operation.

The money raised through a GoFundMe page has allowed the footballer's family to fund two boats to carry out the search. 

An official search for the Piper PA-46 Malibu carrying the Argentinian striker and pilot David Ibbotson was called off on Thursday after their plane disappeared from radar over the English Channel on Monday.
