Rugby player and X Factor star, Levi Davis, has been declared missing after he left his friend in Ibiza ‘suddenly’ to travel to Barcelona without a change of clothes or cash.

Mr. Davis is said to have left his friends without clothes or cash, carrying just a small black backpack. 


‘He announced suddenly that he was going to meet friends in Barcelona,’ Mr Squire told The Sun. ‘But he didn’t say who they were and we haven’t heard from him since I received a video from the Irish pub on October 29.’


He added that there’s been ‘no word from him since’ and everyone is getting ‘increasingly worried’.


England rugby, stars Freddie Burns and Tom Varndell have posted on social media urging anyone who has seen him to get in contact.


Writing on Twitter, Varndell said: ‘If anyone has seen or heard form Levi Davis in the last two weeks could you please drop me a message asap. Many thanks.’
