PARIS, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Premier League soccer player Emiliano Sala was on board a single-engine light aircraft that lost radar contact while flying over the English Channel late on Monday evening, a French police official and a second source said.

Guernsey's coastguard said it received an alert at 20:23 local time from air traffic control that a small aircraft had gone missing approximately 15 miles north of Guernsey.

No trace of the aircraft, carrying Sala from the French city of Nantes to Cardiff, has been found so far. (Reporting by Emmanuel Jarry; Writing by Richard Lough; Editing by Luke Baker)
