THE family of former X Factor star Levi Davis are flying to Barcelona as the search to find the 24-year-old enters its 10th day.
Richard said Levi had got on a ferry to the Catalan capital without a change of clothes or any money.
He revealed that the reality TV star’s family would be flying out to Spain and “walking the streets” of Barcelona and the surrounding areas as part of the desperate search.
The Birmingham-born winger made history in 2020 when he became the first professional rugby union player to come out as bisexual while still playing.
Na segunda-feira, Julie Davis revealed her son had considered retiring from rugby due to an injury and said he had suffered from “a lot of racial prejudice” in the game.
He had travelled out to Spain without the medication he had been taking for his mental health difficulties, ela disse.
Hoje, Levi’s mum spoke to Good Morning Britain to give an update on the search.

“He was approached by a gentleman who saw Levi, who we think was Levi, and asked him in Spanish ‘are you ok?’
“Unfortunately Levi, if it was Levi, didn’t answer back.
“I don’t know if it’s because he doesn’t know the language very well and went on his way.”
UMA GoFundMe appeal launched by Richard to pay for Levi’s family to come out to Spain has already raised almost £500 of its £3,000 goal, Menor que 24 hours after it was set up.
We’ve had some possible sightings and need to get his friends and family on the ground in Spain to walk the streets looking for him
“As many of you will have seen in the press and on social media, Levi Davis is currently missing, last seen in Barcelona,” Richard disse, alongside a picture of his friend.
“He’s struggled with his mental health for many years and we, his friends and family, are extremely concerned for him.
“Thanks to so many people sharing his image and poster, we’ve had some possible sightings and need to get his friends and family on the ground in Spain to walk the streets looking for him and follow up on any leads.
“This obviously costs money, so I’ve set up this page to ask for your help.
“Money raised will be used to cover travel and accommodation costs and, once he’s found, get him the professional help he needs.
“Any money left over will be donated to a charity that can help other venerable people. Thank you for your help.”
It comes after the Old Irish Pub, where Levi went on the night he disappeared, shared CCTV footage of his last known whereabouts with Spanish cops.
Grainy footage shows him carrying a small rucksack on his back.
Earlier on October 29, he had shared a video taken inside the pub with Richard.
A manager at the pub said: “On Monday morning, without even the investigation in Spain started, we have provided local police with the CCTV recording of missing Levi Davis, last seen leaving the Old Irish Pub Barcelona alone at 10pm on October 29.
“We urge everyone who has seen Mr Davis to contact local authorities. We hope that Levi will be safe home soon.”

Ontem, it was revealed that Spanish cops still haven’t started looking for Levi, despite him being missing for more than a week.
Police claimed they were still awaiting official notification that Levi, who came out as bisexual in 2020 and has spoken openly about his mental health, was missing.
It was also revealed on Monday that Levi posted photos on OnlyFans just a day before he disappeared.
A spokeswoman for the regional Mossos d’Esquadra force in Barcelona said: “We are aware of the news of this man’s disappearance from press reports and social media but are still awaiting official notification he is missing.
“It appears he was reported missing by his family in the UK but that notification has not yet reached us.
“We cannot launch a formal investigation until it does but are working on the basis that it may reach us later today.
“Investigators will then be tasked with looking into what might have happened and trying to ascertain among other things whether it’s a voluntary disappearance or could be linked to a crime.
“That work will likely involve talking to potential witnesses and possibly relatives.”
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
A colleague confirmed late last night/on Monday night that “nothing had changed”.
