Levi Davis’ family beg ferry passengers for help finding X Factor star who took 8-hour boat journey before vanishing
LEVI Davis’ family are pleading with ferry passengers for help to find the X Factor star who took an eight-hour boat ride before disappearing.
The former Bath Rugby player, 24, went missing on October 29 after leaving a friend in Ibiza to catch the ferry to Barcelona alone.
Levi’s desperate family have announced in recent days that a private investigator is volunteering their time to try and find him – and offering a £10,000 reward for information.
Gavin Burrows and his company, Line of Inquiry, are now appealing for details on behalf of the family, reports the Sunday Mirror.
They are asking for people who were on the same ferry trip as Levi to come forward.
The boat was motoring between Ibiza and Barcelona on October 29 – the day the 24-year-old disappeared.
Gavin said: “He must have spoken to someone on the ferry.
“It was a six, seven, eight hour trip.”
Levi was last seen on CCTV almost six weeks ago leaving an Irish pub in Barcelona.
His worried family traveled to Spain to help with the search, but despite some possible sightings of Levi, no one has officially confirmed him.
Levi’s mother Julie was also told that her son’s phone and bank accounts had still not been used since the last confirmed sighting.
It comes after a video message Levi sent her on the day he went missing was released.
In the short clip, he is seen on the ferry.
Taken in the middle of the seven-hour journey, Levi’s voice is barely audible over the heavy winds, but he can be heard saying: “Hi mum… it’s beautiful.”
Last month, a witness contacted Levi’s family and claimed to have seen him in Barcelona’s Placa Sant Agusti Vell.
The same witness is believed to have said they saw him in another square near the city’s Arc de Triomf monument.
The location is just a six-minute walk from the Old Irish Pub where Levi was seen leaving on October 29.
Levi made the trip to Barcelona alone after spending a week in Ibiza, arriving in the city around 7pm.
We are still sick of him and just want him home safe.
The former Bath winger has been suffering from depression and went on holiday following a knee injury.
His passport was discovered at the port area in Barcelona almost two weeks ago, while the search continues.
Julie said she had heard nothing from the Spanish police since the discovery of the passport.
His family said they received a tip that Levi had been spotted looking “lost and confused” in a homeless area of Barcelona.
Levi’s foster mother claimed he made a blackmail threat in a since-deleted video shortly before he disappeared.
Levi’s mother Julie said this week: “We are very grateful to Gavin and his team for volunteering their time, expertise and the reward fund to help find Levi.
“We are still sick of him and just want him home safely.
“Hopefully this extra support will encourage people with any information to come forward.”
The rugby player turned reality star performed with fellow rugby players Ben Foden and Thom Evans on X Factor: Celebrity in 2019 as part of the group Try Star.
In 2020, he starred in the E4 dating series Celebs Go Virtual Dating.
