The Catalan police, the Mossos d’Esquadra, have confirmed that they have found the passport of missing British rugby player Levi Davis in the vicinity of Barcelona port, as first reported in the British media.
Davis has not used his phone or bank accounts since going missing on 29 November, nor has he been in touch with family or friends.
The investigation is still on-going as the whereabouts of Davis are still unknown, after being last seen leaving The Old Irish Pub on La Rambla boulevard in central Barcelona. ALSO READ: Rugby player & former Celebrity X Factor singer Levi Davis missing in Barcelona.
The professional rugby player for Worthing Raiders RFC was last seen on CCTV leaving the pub wearing a white T-shirt. His mother, Julie Davis, has since spent time in Barcelona to help search for her missing son.
On Saturday 19 November she said that his passport had been found.
She told The Daily Mail: ‘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,’ she said. ‘We know that his phone and two bank accounts have been untouched since he disappeared and so this is another blow. We remain hopeful but there have been no confirmed reports of Levi since the day he disappeared on 29 October and we are becoming increasingly concerned.’
‘This is the worst feeling in the world not knowing where Levi is. We just hope he is okay and want him home as soon as possible,’ she added.
A spokesperson for the Mossos d’Esquadra force said: ‘I can confirm it was found in Barcelona Port. I am not in a position to give out any more information on exactly where or when it was found.’
Davis had been traveling across Europe before he went missing. On the day of the disappearance, he took a ferry from Ibiza to Barcelona and after arriving visited the bar where he was last seen.
Since Davis went missing, there have been a couple of potential sightings of him in Barcelona city centre on La Rambla, Barceloneta beach, and in Plaça de Sant Agustí.
The 24-year-old player wanted to tour around Europe while recovering from a knee injury. His first stop was to visit a friend in Ibiza before he then traveled to Catalonia, but he didn’t have specific plans for his trip, according to his mother.
If anybody thinks they may have seen Levi Davis in Barcelona or in the surrounding area, they are urged to contact the police by phoning 112 or make contact via email: email@example.com.
