Jay Slater friends 'turn detective' over fear 'something sinister' has happened

Jay Slater friends have promised to turn detective to try and find the missing 19-year-old. Missing Brit teen Slater was last heard from on Monday morning in Tenerife when he told a friend he planned to walk back to his accommodation after missing a bus.

After being "fobbed off" by police in the Canaries, according to pal Lucy, who was the last person Jay spoke to, his loved ones have descended on Tenerife to try and get to the bottom of what happened to the missing 19-year-old from Lancashire.

The pals he was on holiday with quickly jumped into action to try and find where he could have gone. After Lucy received Jay's final phone call, where he complained he had just one per cent battery left, Lucy said they found the house of the two people he was last with.

She said: "We managed to find the house. I knocked on the door and there were two people there." She said: "They told me he'd spoken to the next door neighbours and they'd told him there was a bus every 10 minutes back down to Los Cristianos."

Other pals have said "something sinister" is going on and Lucy added: "The bus stop was right next to the house. So obviously if he'd gone to get the bus he wouldn't have got lost because it [the stop] was visible from the front door." In his hometown, people are showing support to family and friends who are overseas searching for him, by ‘turning the streets blue’.

This morning Tracy Wright-Khan, Laura Bailey and Gail Bailey tied blue ribbons around lampposts, fences and beyond in and around Blackburn Road. Photographer PL Photography and Images said “sadness and hope hangs over the town”.

Jay was last spoken to at 8.50am on Monday, June 17. Family and friends have been posting about Jay’s disappearance on social media and his mum, Debbie, has flown over to Tenerife to search for him.
