Levi Davis: One month on since disappearance, family still hoping for breakthrough

X Factor star and rugby player Levi Davis has been missing for one month today.

And with each passing day, the 24-year-old’s friends and family are growing more concerned at the lack of breakthrough in the investigation.

Police confirmed his passport was discovered in Barcelona, Spain, after he was last seen leaving a pub in the city’s La Rambla tourist hotspot on October 29.

There have been multiple potential sightings, including in homeless area Plaça Sant Agust, with someone resembling Levi appearing “lost and confused”.

The Worthing Raiders player left the UK for Ibiza in the wake of an injury.

But he then suddenly left the friend he was staying with and took a boat from the party island to Barcelona without clothes or cash.

Since arriving in the city, police said Levi had not used his phone and had not accessed his bank accounts.

His mum Julie Davis has said he “has been quite down lately” and his disappearance has “left us all very worried”.

Here is all we know about Levi’s disappearance

Leaving Ibiza

Levi had travelled from the UK to Ibiza, but after arriving, he suddenly told close friend Richard Squire he was leaving to see friends in the Catalan capital.

Richard, 46, told The Sun : “He announced suddenly that he was going to meet friends in Barcelona.

“But he didn’t say who they were and we haven’t heard from him since I received a video from the Irish pub on October 29.

“There’s been no word from him since and his family and everyone who knows him is getting increasingly worried.”

Levi had left all his belongings at his friend’s house and only had a small black backpack with him.

He arrived in Barcelona by ferry on October 29 – and was last seen that same evening.

Old Irish Pub

In footage obtained by the Mirror, Levi was captured on CCTV leaving the Old Irish Pub in La Rambla at 10.05pm on October 29 and has not been heard from since.

The clip showed Levi carrying a small black rucksack, while wearing a white short-sleeved T-shirt, black trousers and black and white trainers.

Since arriving in Barcelona, police said that he had not used his phone and had not accessed his bank accounts.

Police in the Catalan city said Levi’s mobile phone signal was last picked up near to Barcelona’s Sants mainline train station overnight on October 29.

Possible sightings

A witness reportedly told Levi’s family he had seen him near La Boqueria Market – just a six-minute walk from the Irish pub where he was last seen.

A week later on November 14, the same person said they had seen him in Placa Sant Agusti Vell, a homeless area and a square just minutes away from Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf monument.

The anonymous person told Levi’s agent and close friend Tom Varndell he was looking “lost and confused”.

Tom said: “They said, ‘I shouldn’t have told you anything in the first place, but I saw the tweets and felt bad’.

“They said he was seen at Placa Sant Agusti this morning [Monday, November 14], which is usually transited by homeless people.”

But mum Julie has now cast doubt on these sightings, after visiting Barcelona to help retrace her son’s footsteps before flying back to her home in Birmingham.

She told the MailOnline : “There have been a few sightings of someone looking like Levi near La Boqueria Market and the Arc de Triomf monument over the last week but sadly we are not sure it’s him.”

Passport found

Police revealed earlier this month a passport found in their investigations belonged to Levi.

Mum Julie said: “This is a very worrying development because you cannot do anything in Barcelona without a passport.

“Besides travel, you cannot book into a hotel or even rent somewhere without one.

“We know that his phone and two bank accounts have been untouched since he disappeared and so this is another blow.”

Tom added: “It’s not just a guy trying to stay off the radar, no one stays away this long.

“News about his passport is quite significant.”

He said anyone with any information should email [email protected]

Mental health

Police are understood to have also confirmed that Levi is not in hospital, and has not been arrested as part of an “emergency” response to a missing persons report.

Julie revealed that he did not provide the family with an address of where he was staying as he planned to be ‘moving around’.

The worried mum went on to tell Spanish Daily ABC that he had depression and had gone missing on previous occasions – but for “no more than two or three days”.

She said: “He would always come back or we would find him but it’s been 12 days now and this is not normal. He must be disorientated or confused.”

Tom launched a GoFundMe paid and wrote his friend has “struggled with his mental health” and everyone was growing concerned for him.
