The plane traveled from Nantes, France, stopping appearing on radar Monday night. Vehicle tracks have not been found.
The Cardiff City soccer club today expressed "concern" about the fate of Argentine Emiliano Sala, from Nantes, as he appeared to be traveling with a plane that disappeared last night in the waters of the English Channel.
The plane traveled from Nantes, in France, to Cardiff, and authorities continued to search for a device, the 46 Malibu PA, which disappeared from radar on Monday night.
Guernsey police, in Kanal, said that the search resumed this morning and had not found a trace of the plane, which was traveling with two people in it.

Cardiff City, which signed the 28-year-old Argentine on Saturday from Nantes, said he was "looking for light" on the plane, which apparently disappeared on Alderney island.
A spokesman for British coast guard services reported that they were helping their counterparts on Guernsey with helicopters sent from the south of England.
The British Meteorological Service reports that when the plane disappeared, there was some rain, but it was not strong, and the breeze was mild.
Cardiff City signed Sala for 15 million pounds ($ 19.3 million) after negotiations with Nantes.
When the signing was known, the Argentine said he was very interested in starting training with the Wales club and meeting his new team mates.
Sala hung on his last Twitter message a photo of himself with his former teammate.
