panish police hunting for Levi Davis have admitted for the first time they do not think the missing X Factor and rugby star went missing ‘voluntarily’.
The 24-year-old has not been seen since he vanished in Barcelona in October last year when he was seen on CCTV leaving an Irish pub in Barcelona.
His passport was found by the port but after that the trail has gone cold.
The rugby player’s disappearance is now being investigated by a specialist criminal investigation unit in Spain.
A spokesman for the Catalan Mossos d’Esquadra police force revealed there is no “logical” explanation for Levi’s disappearance, adding it is is now being treated as “disturbing”.
He added: “With the information at our disposal, it doesn’t appear that this person has gone missing voluntarily and doesn’t want to be found.
“We’re dealing with an adult male whose disappearance doesn’t have a logical explanation and which we’re therefore treating as disturbing.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean he’s been the victim of a crime and it’s important to clarify that the group that’s now investigating this person’s disappearance is not a murder squad or homicide unit because that would mean there is a probability or certainty he is dead.
“What it is is a unit which has been tasked with this case following the initial investigation by officers at the station where this person was reported missing.”
Friend Richard Squire has been leading an appeal to locate the rugby player who had gone onto a career in music.
He said: “I’m dealing with people that I’ve never met before.
“You don’t know what information is right, what information is wrong. And it’s just incredibly upsetting.
“Even though it’s four months it still feels like the first day every day. And it’s difficult, it’s hard.”
Levi, who had played rugby for Bath and Worthing, was spending time on his music career at the time of his disappearance.
He’d signed a record deal after an appearance on Celebrity X-Factor in 2019 and released his first track last September.
He had gone to stay with Mr Squire in Ibiza and worked on songs while he was there. His second release was on the way.
Mr Davis arrived on the island on 17 October before heading by boat to Barcelona on 29 October.
