Footballer Emiliano Sala should have brought the plane from his new club Cardiff City to disappear from the radar on 21 January.
The plane debris was found at the bottom of the channel between France and the United Kingdom on Sunday morning.
An autopsy was also found in the wreckage of the plane, which was recovered on Wednesday evening. Dorset police are now reporting that the coroner identified the body as Emiliano Sala.
The remains will be handed over to the Argentinian family as soon as possible. The brother-in-law turned 28 years old.
Sala and Ibbetson’s families were constantly exposed to the developments and also received psychological guidance. Investigations into the circumstances of the plane crash continue, police confirm.
Meanwhile, Nantes announced that he would take Sala’s number 9 back. “Emiliano has made his mark,” said Nantes president Waldemar Keita. “That’s why, as many supporters want, I want to get his number 9 jersey back. Emiliano is one of the legends who made club history for the Nantes.”
