LONDON (Reuters) - Police have suspended the search for a light aircraft carrying Cardiff City’s new signing Emiliano Sala after it disappeared over the English Channel en route to the Welsh capital for the soccer player to make his club debut.

They said a number of floating objects had been seen in the water but were unable to confirm whether any were from the missing aircraft.

“Search and rescue operations have been suspended as the sun has now set,” Guernsey Police said on Tuesday evening. “The current plan is for (them) to resume at sunrise tomorrow.”
