The Rugby player, 24, was last seen filming a video at The Old Irish Pub, off the Catalan capital’s tourist street La Rambla on October 29. He has been mising for almost three months now.

Speaking to Sky News’ Kay Burley in September, Levi’s mum Julie said that Levi was ‘frightened’ and could have been ‘running from something’. And now, the Catalan newspaper La Vanguardia has claimed that Davis had got himself into debt after his party lifestyle spiralled out of control.

A British investigator has been hired to look into Davis’ disappearance, and he told the Spanish newspaper: “Davis came to Barcelona fleeing from these criminals. He had adopted a frenzied lifestyle and was in a very delicate situation.

“The truth is he was sure they were chasing him. In fact he was convinced they had tried to poison him on one occasion.”

It’s said that he owed around £102,000.
