Jay Slater's friends' chilling theories about 'suspicious' Tenerife disappearance

Missing Jay Slater's friends' chilling theories about his disappearance in Tenerife have emerged. Pals of the missing 19-year-old have said him vanishing is "weird" and they have insisted something is amiss with his disappearance in the Canary Islands.

A Coronation Street star has issued a desperate plea to help find Jay after the 19-year-old Briton went missing after a music festival in Tenerife. Vicky Entwistle, who played Janice Battersby on the ITV soap, says she 'hope to God they find him' as she prays for the missing apprentice bricklayer's return.

Jay is the 55-year-old actress' godmother's grandson and she said she knows 'the authorities are pulling out all the stops to find him' and 'that gives us some hope he will be found'. Jay travelled to the Canary Islands for a musical festival with pal Lucy and another friend last week.

Slater had attended the New Rave Generation music festival in Tenerife over the weekend. Jay's mum said she- believes "he's been taken against his will with what’s been said, but it’s in the hands of the police" while Lucy said: 'He's gone on a night out, he's gone to a friend's house, someone that he has met on holiday.

"One of the people he has met has hired a car out of here, so he's driven them back to his apartment and Jay has gone there not realising how far away it is. He's ended up out in the middle of nowhere. Jay was obviously thinking he would be able to get home from there.

"But then in the morning he's set off walking, using his Maps on his phone and ended up in the middle of mountains with nothing around." She went on: "He rang me saying his phone was on 1 per cent, he said ''I don't know where I am, I need a drink and my phone is about to die''."

"It’s secluded but the spot where he last made phone contact with me is near a main road and he would have had the wherewithal to flag someone down, to wave someone down and ask for help. There’s something weird going on. It is suspicious. In two days you’re telling me someone’s not seen him. There’s a restaurant 10 minutes away that he would have seen or walked past," she added.
