Emiliano Sala’s girlfriend Berenice Schkair, 26, insisted that her boyfriend is still alive blaming his disappearance on a “series of irresponsibility” in an interview with Argentine media outlet Infobae.
She said: “I don’t want to speak about him in the past. I have hope he is going to turn up, that’s he’s alive.
“Where? On an island. I feel, as does his family, that he cannot have disappeared.”
The Argentine model previously told Daily Star Online she last spoke to Sala on January 20, just hours before his plane took off from Nantes, France, at 7.15pm on January 21.
Schkair, who has described the ordeal as a “nightmare”, told Infobae she and Sala “were getting to know each other” and had not been dating long.
