There are growing concerns new Cardiff striker Emiliano Sala was on board an aircraft that has gone missing.
Sky Sports News understands the club were expecting their new £18m signing to travel back to Cardiff on Monday night.
In the early hours of Tuesday morning, emergency services in the Channel Islands reported that a small plane travelling from Nantes in France to Cardiff had gone missing near the island of Alderney.
French news agency AFP are reporting they have been informed by police sources that Sala was on board the aircraft.
Authorities say the Piper Malibu, which is believed to have two people on board, disappeared from radar near the Casquets lighthouse at about 8:30pm on Monday.
A search and rescue operation is now underway.
In a statement, Guernsey Police said: "Guernsey Coastguard received an alert at 20:23 from Jersey ATC, that a light aircraft had gone off their radar approximately 15 miles north of Guernsey, initiating a major search and rescue operation involving both St Peter Port and Alderney lifeboats. Air Search 1 and 2 HM Coastguard helicopters are also involved in the search.
"The PA 46 Malibu, a single turbine engine aircraft was on route from Nantes in France, to Cardiff in Wales, with two people on board when it was lost off radar as Jersey ATC was attempting to make contact.
"A search model was created on SARIS, based on the likely ditching position, and all search and rescue assets were tasked to the area.
"The search was terminated at 02:00, with all search and rescue assets being stood down, due to strengthening winds, worsening sea conditions and reducing visibility.
"At this time no trace of the missing aircraft had been found.
"The aircraft departed Nantes at 1915 for Cardiff. The aircraft was flying at 5000 feet. The aircraft on passing Guernsey requested descent. Jersey ATC lost contact whilst it was flying at 2300 feet.
"Air Search 1 and a French rescue helicopter based in Cherbourg, resumed the search of the area at 08:00."
HM Coastguard said the incident was not in the UK search and rescue area, although it confirmed it had sent two helicopters to help.
Cardiff completed the signing of Sala from Nantes on Saturday on a three-and-a-half year deal.
