The Argentine football striker's father Horacio said from his home town Progreso:
'I cannot believe it .... this is a dream ... a bad dream ... I'm desperate'
Though the pieces of the plane are found, there is no any news about the pa s senger, Emiliano Sala, and the pilot David Ibbotson.
The total sum of £300000 ( $ 395,984.70 ) was collected by crowdfunding starting a campaign GoFundMe with the help of Premier League stars Laurent Koscielny and Ilkay Gundogan. Moreover, popular football stars including Lionel Messi, Adrien Rabiot, Nordi Mukiele, Kylian Mbappe, Geoffrey and others donated a large sum of money while boosting the GoFundMe Campaign.
The plane's pieces were found by the shipwreck hunter c u m Marine scientist David Mearns in the night. He said:
A plane carrying Emiliano Sala and piloted by Dave Ibbotson, 59, has been located by my crew. The families of Sala and Ibbotson have been informed by the police. This is about the best result we could expect for the families but is devastating news. No bodies have not been recovered yet.
He also believes that the plane entered the deep blue ocean in one piece that is why it has been found so fast in the English Channel.
