Levi Davis’ passport has been found in Barcelona by the police, according to reports. Born in Birmingham, the rugby union star has been missing for more than three weeks.

The last time Davis’ phone signal was picked up was on October 29. On that day, he was said to have been in the Old Irish Pub, two miles away from Sants-Barcelona Train Station, for around 35 minutes.

Davis’ foster mother, Julie Davis, issued a plea on Good Morning Britain for her son to come home earlier in the month. She spoke about his mental health and that he said “I need to just sort my head out and have some time to refresh myself”. Julie herself flew out to Barcelona on November 10 to assist with the search, before returning home to Birmingham. d

Speaking to MailOnline, she said: “This is a very worrying development because you cannot do anything in Barcelona without a passport. Besides travel, you cannot book into a hotel or even rent somewhere without one.

“We know that his phone and two bank accounts have been untouched since he disappeared and so this is another blow. There have been a few sightings of someone looking like Levi near La Boqueria Market and the Arc de Triomf monument over the last week but sadly we are not sure it’s him.

“We remain hopeful but there have been no confirmed reports of Levi since the day he disappeared on October 29 and we are becoming increasingly concerned. We’re very grateful to the police, particularly the Mossos D’esqurdra [police of Catalonia], and the British Consulate who are working very hard to find Levi. This is the worst feeling in the world not knowing where Levi is. We just hope he is ok and want him home as soon as possible.”

Davis, 24, is known for being a former X Factor star and rugby union winger. During his rRugby career, he played for Bath and is currently signed to Ealing Trailfinders. He made history in 2020 when he became the first openly bisexual active rugby union player.

On X Factor, he was part of a group with two other rugby union players, Ben Foden and Thom Evans, named Try Star. As well as this, he also partook in the 2020 series of Celebs Go Dating on E4..
