A search on Sunday found the Piper Malibu plane on the seabed off Guernsey, nearly two weeks after it went missing.
In a statement released today, January 4, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) reported that they deployed a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to the wreckage, where they verified that the plane type and registration matched that of the aircraft the two men were travelling in.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed on Monday that a body was visible in the wreck, which is about 67 metres deep in the Channel.
A decision has yet to be taken on whether to raise the wreckage to the surface.
According to Daily Mail report citing Sky Sports, the marine specialists David Mearns, who is in charge of the private search revealed that the plane's wreckage was discovered in the seabed of the English Channel.
He added that it had been located by the privately hired vessel FPV Morven, and the AAIB's vessel, the Geo Ocean III, had visually identified the wreckage with an ROV.
Mr. Mearns said he approached the Sala family offering his services after seeing an emotional plea from Romina, the footballer's sister.
On January 24, Guernsey island police said that a search operation had been concluded, as Sala and Ibbotson had a very low chance of survival.
But Sala's family launched a crowd-funding campaign for a private search, which raised over 300,000 euros.
The plane, a Piper PA-46 Malibu, vanished from radar around 20 kilometres (12 miles) north of Guernsey, with pilot Ibbotson the only other person aboard.
"They told me that the days passed and there was no news of Emiliano or the plane", Horacio told Cronica TV in Argentina. "But tonight they have heard devastating news and in respect of the families I won't comment any further about what has happened".
Sala had just been signed by Premier League club Cardiff.
The two captains laid floral tributes on the halfway line before what the club called a "silent reflection".
