Jay Slater sleuths urge Tenerife police to check area 'now'

Jay Slater web sleuths have urged police to check a remote area of Tenerife "now". The missing 19-year-old vanished in June in Tenerife after a night out with pals, who he was holidaying with at the Canary Islands and visited a rave alongside earlier this night.

Mr Slater travelled to Tenerife with two pals and went missing on June 17 after leaving the NRG music festival in a car with two British men he met that night. They travelled to the holiday rental cottage in Masca where the apprentice bricklayer was later seen walking up a steep road in the early hours of June 17.

He is believed to have been attempting to walk to his accommodation, which was 11 hours away on foot. Former British detective Mark Williams-Thomas has urged Tenerife landowners to search their land and any outbuildings for any signs of Jay's passage.

The former detective said: "The evidence is that Jay walked off from the rental, walked for about 30 minutes and then sent his location at 8.49am and 8.50am. And we know that he was, at that stage, off the road on a track with loose stones and we have that fixed as a location on GPS.

"I now want to make an appeal for landowners in the area of the Parque Rural de Teno to check any outbuildings and land that they have in the hope that further searches will continue by volunteers in the area not yet searched."

He added: "We have received information that would suggest Jay left the rental property feeling scared and that he would not return to the rental, even though that would have been the most sensible course of action, and also where he could have charged his phone and got water.

"He was told to go back to the rental. He said he could not do that and that he had already been walking 30 minutes and that he was now off the road and walking on a track, where there were loose stones."
