THE Former Rugby player Levi Daviswho disappeared in Barcelona in October last year and has not been heard from since, owed £100,000 to a somali mob. That is according to British private detectives that they are investigating the case, and that they told the Spanish daily The vanguard about their latest findings.
The 24-year-old is believed to have fallen into a spiral of partying and excess, making the sudden decision to leave Ibiza, where he was staying with a friend, for Barcelona in an attempt to “flee these criminals”. said one of the private detectives to the newspaper.
Davis was last seen on CCTV leaving the Old Irish Pub near Las Ramblas in Barcelona on October 29. Subsequently, his passport was located in the port area of the city, and since then there have only been unconfirmed sightings of him.
The one-time rugby player from Bath, who has also appeared on reality shows in the UK as X Factor: Celebrity, may have died after being wanted by the criminal gang for his debts according to investigators.
The Good Morning Britain television program reported on Wednesday that the private detective in charge of the investigation in Barcelona, Gavin Burrows, told the program that Davis may have drowned in the port.
Reports in the Spanish media indicated that a cruise ship had alerted authorities that someone had been seen at sea at the time of their disappearance, but a search was called off after it became clear that none of the passengers or crew were missing. vessel.
Davis’s mother, Julie, appeared on Good Morning Britain today and expressed her frustration at the slow progress of the official inquiry.
“I have had a lot of support from family and friends and of course the private investigators have been working very hard and the Spanish police have also done their part,” he said. “But what I think has been difficult is that the information has not arrived.
“There is the language barrier, of course, and having to go through the British consulate before and after, the feedback with news updates is very slow, very slow,” he said.
The Davis family are offering a reward of £10,000 for any information on his whereabouts, and I have provided this UK number and website for anyone with information: 08001939333 http://loiinvestigations.com.
