Cardiff owner donates £50,000 towards fund to resume search for missing Sala pilot Ibbotson

Cardiff City proprietor Vincent Tan has donated £50,000 to the reserve to continue search endeavors for missing pilot David Ibbotson.

Mr. Ibbotson, 59, was flying the £15million striker Emiliano Sala, 28, from Nantes to the Welsh capital when his plane disappeared near Alderney on January 21.

An official search was called off after four days.

Sala's body was recouped and formally recognized last week, after a fundraising page raised more than £260,000 to pay for a private search yet Mr. Ibbotson, from Lincolnshire, remains unaccounted for.

His family has appealed for help to attempt and resume search endeavors to 'bring him home', with a GoFundMe page raising more than £170,000 in four days.

Presently, Wales Online has affirmed Tan has donated £50,000 to the store - taking the total whole to almost £230,000 of its £300,000 target.

Tan revealed last week that he had offered to help Sala's family fly his body home to Argentina.

He said: 'Cardiff City will continue to work with the Air Accident Investigation Branch and investigators to find out how the crash happened and to assist Emiliano's family.

'We have offered to them to arrange to take Emiliano back to rest with his family in Argentina. Even though he will be there his soul will always be in our hearts.

'We feel a tremendous loss but the biggest loss is borne by Sala's family. May Sala's soul rest in peace.'
