22

Spanish police have ended the hunt for missing Jay Slater – almost two weeks after the British teenager vanished on the island of Tenerife.

WHAT HAPPENED TO JAY SLATER?

Jay who is an apprentice bricklayer from Oswaldtwistle, near Blackburn in Lancashire, went missing on June 17 and a huge search involving dogs, drones and a helicopter has failed to find any trace.

THE FINAL SEARCH ENDS…

On Saturday, police launched one final push and appealed for an army of volunteers to help but just six people turned up to join 24 mountain rescue and fire teams in the remote area of Masca, north-west Tenerife.

… BUT INVESTIGATION IS STILL ‘ON’

In a dramatic update on Sunday morning, a spokesperson for Tenerife police said: ‘The search is now over but the investigation remains open.’ The spokesperson refused to elaborate on whether it was now a criminal investigation.

WHEN HE WAS LAST SEEN

Jay, 19, was last seen at around 8am on June 17 by the owner of an Airbnb he had gone back to with two men after a rave.

HOW HE WENT MISSING

He had missed a bus back to his accommodation and was seen setting off on foot for what would have been an 11-hour walk.

The decision to end the search was taken at a senior level following a meeting between investigators and mountain rescue teams at the island’s HQ i Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Jay’s phone last pinged near to a look-out point where search teams gathered yesterday to begin the last day of the operation.
