“The survey vessel is currently being mobilised in Southampton, and subject to weather conditions, will be re-positioned to Guernsey on Thursday or Friday this week.

“Based on current weather predictions, we are hopeful that the underwater search will begin on the weekend, most probably on Sunday.”

In the meantime, local fishing boats have been enlisted to help scour the surface water for the Piper PA-46 Malibu, which originally disappeared from radar close to the Channel Islands, before the submarine search gets underway.
