The plane carrying the missing Cardiff attacker Emiliano Sala was found, his family was told.
A search boat found the wreckage on the seabed of the English channel on Monday morning, according to Mr. David Mearns, a marine explorer who was investigating the air accidents, was in charge of the operation.
The Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared from radars near the Channel Islands on January 22.
Both pilot David Ibbotson and the Argentine soccer player are thought to be dead.
Sala has just completed a £ 15m transfer to Cardiff City from French club Nantes.
