Jay Slater's family has shared a new picture which they believe holds a resemblance to the missing teen as the search continues into the night.

This blurry image has been shared with the Manchester Evening News by Jay's dad, who told them "it just doesn't make sense”. The 19-year-old from Lancashire vanished on Monday morning.

It is thought that he stayed at a remote Airbnb north of Masca village, nestled in the vast mountainous landscape the evening before with two people he had met at the NRG music event.

Jay's worried family have made an image they believe matches Jay's appearance public. While blurred, they hope it will be investigated thoroughly.

It comes amid claims somebody had reported the potential sighting of a person who looked like Jay. The person had been seen walking through the local church square at around 6pm on Monday - ten hours after he was reportedly last heard from.

The Civil Guard has not directly confirmed if this sighting is being investigated. Speaking to MEN dad Warren said: "You think, has somebody got him? Because no matter if you were drunk or whatever, you don't go off that road up there.

"And there are people up there... you don't go along that road for more than 20 minutes without somebody stopping you or passing you.

"I knew right from when I went up there that he wouldn't have gone [off that road]. He isn't stupid. When I saw the police I asked them, seriously, 'would you go off that road?' and I think it woke them up a bit.

"It started out as it being a lad who had gone walking and got lost, or that he may have fallen. But it doesn't make sense. Nobody would walk off that road. Why would he have gone uphill?

"It's dangerous; it's a massive mountain. It's not just a hill. It was only when I went up there myself [that I noticed]. People that go out to a party don't come up here."
