There is "genuine concern" at Cardiff over Sala's safety and, shortly before Tuesday lunchtime, the French Civil Aviation Authority confirmed that Sala was on-board the aircraft when it departed France on Monday evening.
"There was about 15 to 20 miles visibility so we could see quite a lot during the first search but the lifeboats found it quite hard.
I'm imagining that people in a light aircraft wouldn't be wearing particularly warm clothing, and so it is concerning because if they're in the water, their chances of surviving are diminishing all the time".
John Fitzgerald, the chief executive of Channel Islands Air Search, suggested that the search was no longer a rescue mission, according to reports.
"The sea temperatures are very, very cold and just sap the core temperature of anybody in the water very, very quickly".
"I don't know what to think".
"I know the challenge is big but together we will make it".
The police have stated that authorities will resume their search on Wednesday morning at sunrise.
Sala, 28, who had been at Nantes since 2016 and had scored 12 league goals this season, had signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with relegation-threatened Cardiff subject to receiving global clearance.
Emiliano Sala was en route from Nantes to Wales with two other people aboard when the light aircraft disappeared from radar Monday night off the coast of Guernsey. It then lost contact with ATC at around 2,300 feet and vanished from radar northwest of Alderney.
Meanwhile, Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo has come under fire for showing off a picture of himself smiling on a plane just hours after news broke of the missing aircraft. He's played for FC Nantes of France for the last four years.
FC Nantes posted a video tribute to the popular striker after he was sold to Cardiff City, saying "Thank you Emi, forever yellow and green", referring to the club's official colors. "I'm in despair. I pray that this ends well". A friend who saw it on TV told me. The club said it was "seeking clarification" as to what happened.
Horacio Sala also says that no one from French club Nantes has reached out to the family.
