British pilot David Ibbotson's body has not yet been discovered with a GoFundMe page launched to help fund a private search.

SOCCER star Emiliano Sala died from head injuries and had to be identified by his fingerprints when the plane he was travelling on crashed into the ocean, an inquest has heard.

Argentina-born Emiliano Sala joined struggling Cardiff from FC Nantes earlier in January 2019.

"The families of Mr Sala and the pilot David Ibbotson have been updated with this news and will continue to be supported by specially-trained family liaison officers".

It's a nice measure taken by EA, who was also quick to put a stop to the players trying to capitalize on the tragic situation by raising the price of Sala in Ultimate Team.

Sala, 28, had been flying from Nantes in western France to Wales on January 21 to make his debut for Premier League team Cardiff City when the single-engined Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared over the sea.

Ibbotson, however, was not found.

Home Office pathologist Dr Basil Purdue has given the cause of Sala's death as "head and trunk injuries".

The Geo Ocean III, which was involved in finding the wreckage, took the body back to the nearest port of Portland in Dorset, where the body was formally identified.

The plane carrying Emiliano Sala was en route from France to Cardiff when it crashed two days after the Argentine striker's £15m transfer to the Bluebirds was announced.

"Police, Air Accidents Investigation Branch and the Civil Aviation Authority are continuing with their inquiries".

A fundraising campaign to restart the search for Ibbotson is already more than half way to its £300,000 ($385,000, 340,000 euro) target.

His disappearance and subsequent confirmation of death prompted an outpouring of grief across the world of football.

Paris Saint-Germain player Kylian Mbappe Lottin donated under the name Elie Lottin.

Mrs Ibbotson said they have not been in contact with the family of Sala as they are both grieving, but said "we've always thought about them" and she sent her "deepest condolences".
