‘We can’t leave him out there on his own’ – the words of David Ibbotson’s wife and daughter, who have pleaded for members of the public to help fund a search for his body.
Nora and Danielle Ibbotson appeared on Good Morning Britain this morning.
The pilot went missing north of Guernsey three weeks ago.
He was flying the plane that disappeared over the English Channel on January 21.
The wreckage has since been found, as has the body of footballer Emiliano Sala, who was on board.
But the pilot’s family are now aiming to raise £300,000 to bring him home.
