Nante wants search for Emiliano Salah to Resume
FC Nantes have joined Emiliano Sala's family in urging police to reconsider calling off the search for the missing Cardiff City striker.
Search and rescue efforts resumed for a third day early on Thursday after the Piper Malibu aircraft with Sala and pilot David Ibbotson on board went missing en route to the Welsh capital on Monday .
But Guernsey Police confirmed that following an extensive operation covering approximately 1,700 square miles around the Channel Islands, no trace of the plane, pilot or passenger had been found.
However, Sala's family believe it is too soon to stop looking and were later backed by a statement made on social media by Nantes, Sala's former club, who urged the search to continue for his loved ones' sake.
"FC Nantes learned of the abandonment of the search for the missing plane. They cannot stop," the club said in a statement posted to their official Twitter account.
"The Club and its supporters are demanding that the search to find Emiliano Sala continues, for his family and for his relatives.
"Together, for Emi!"
