Jay Slater's family warned they won't get answers 'for 10 years'

Jay Slater's dad fears they won't get the answers behind his disappearance for TEN YEARS. The missing 19-year-old apprentice bricklayer vanished in mid-June and now Warren, his dad, is scouring the treacherous Canary Islands terrain where he disappeared.

"It’ll take an army 10 years to cover all this. I’d employ a team of Gurkhas," he said. Warren, Zak and Jay's uncle Glen have all been out looking for the teen as they expand the search. Jay was partying in Tenerife the night before he vanished.

It comes as friend Bradley Hargreaves said he heard Jay fall whilst talking on the phone. Opening up about Jay on This Morning, nineteen-year-old Brad became emotional as he spoke of his friend's "zest for life" and the final promise he made him - that he was going to call back as he hung up due to "someone else ringing him".

Brad said that Jay wasn't initially worried about finding his way back to his friends when he first got lost while on holiday in Tenerife. On the programme, Brad explained: "He was on the phone and he goes: 'I've got walk and go all down that road'".

Brad also said that Jay, according to him, would have avoided going down the road he had mentioned during their phone call as he said that Jay would have taken a safer path. Brad then revealed that he could hear Jay's feet slide on the rocks, signalling to him his friend had "went off the road.. That's how I knew he went off the road because, you know when you walk on gravel, or whatever it is, you can... you know what I mean, stones."

He added: "I said: 'put your location on." He said: '15 minute drive, fourteen-hour walk.' I don't know if it's accurate or not so I said to him: 'it's only a 15-min drive, get a taxi."
