Terrifying ‘missed opportunity’ that could have helped find missing Levi Davis after cruise ship passengers spot person in water
A CHILLING discovery that could help find missing Levi Davis has been described as a “missed opportunity” after a person was spotted in the sea.
The 24-year-old former professional rugby player was last seen leaving an Irish pub in Barcelona on October 29, with his passport later discovered in the city’s port area.
Reports have speculated the missing X Factor star may have drowned after being hunted down by criminals with over £100,000 in debt.
And a sighting of a person missing at sea around the time Levi was last seen has raised the question if it was him.
An unnamed member of the private investigative team told La Vanguardia newspaper: “Davis’ friend, who lives in Eivissa, also pointed out that a day later cruise ship staff reported that one person had been in the sea.
“Shortly thereafter, the search operations were stopped because nobody was missing on board the ship, neither the crew nor the passengers.
“We didn’t report Davis missing until a few days later and his passport showed up at the port a few weeks later.”
The same reports were corroborated by reporter Nick Dixon on Good Morning Britain, who claimed it could have been a missed opportunity.
In his TV report he said: “A man was in distress in the port area near a nearby cruise ship.
“A search was conducted but no body was found and everyone was apprehended, at least on the cruise ship.
“But some time later, police discovered that Levi’s passport was found in the same area.”
The revelation comes just a day after it was reported that Levi may have racked up huge debts to Somali criminals when his partying lifestyle spiraled out of control.
His family has hired a private investigator to find Levi, although it has been reported that his bank card and phone have not been used since his disappearance.
One of the investigators said: “Davis came to Barcelona fleeing from these criminals.
“He had adopted a hectic lifestyle and was in a very delicate situation. The truth is he was sure they were following him.
“In fact, he was convinced they had once tried to poison him.”
The claims were directed at Levi’s mother Julie Davis, who broke down in tears on Good Morning Britain and was comforted by host Susana Reid.
Julie said: “There’s always that mother’s instinct.
“Right before he left, there was a message, I don’t know, forces from above, telling me, ‘Give him a hug because you just don’t know if this will be your last’…”
The former Bath winger had been suffering from depression and left for Spain after suffering a knee injury.
The rugby player-turned-reality star appeared on X Factor: Celebrity in 2019 with fellow rugby players Ben Foden and Thom Evans as part of the group Try Star.
In 2020 he starred in the E4 dating series Celebs Go Virtual Dating.
