The Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed the sighting of one body this morning - nearly two weeks after the plane went missing.

A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) conducted a further search of the area overnight on Sunday and the AAIB says footage shows one of the aircraft's occupants within the wreckage.

"The families of Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson have been notified by police".

The Sala family, which is located in the French city of Nantes, was informed by the police by order of the British aerial accident investigation agency AAIB, which is in charge of the official expert reports to find out the causes of the accident.

"Having identified a priority search area last week, the AAIB agreed a search strategy with Blue Water Recoveries Ltd to maximise the chance of locating the aircraft wreckage", read an AAIB statement.

"Tonight our sole thoughts are with the families and friends of Emiliano and David", wrote Mearns. He has accepted that all this feels like a "bad dream".

Mearns, who claims to have located 24 shipwrecks in his career, was working on behalf of the Sala family.

Sala signed for the Bluebirds on January 19th for a club record transfer fee, somewhere in the region of £15 million and had returned to Nantes to settle personal affairs, before boarding the private plane to head back to Cardiff on that Monday evening.

On Sunday morning it managed to search an area of four nautical miles (around eight kilometres) of the English Channel and detected the plane 63 metres underwater using the boat's sonar equipment.

"They saw the registration number and the biggest surprise to both of us was that most of the plane is there".

But Sala's family launched a crowd-funding campaign for a private search, which raised over 300,000 euros.

"Mr Mearns added: "(The AAIB) will be able to rule things out or rule things in, that's the normal investigative process for any crash, so I think it's imperative that the plane is recovered, and now even more so now we know someone is down there".

A few days later, seat cushions believed to be from the missing plane were found on a beach near Surtainville, on the northwest coast of France.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said Sala would have been "really proud" of the team after they won 2-0 in their first home match since the plane vanished.
