Desperate Search Continues for Jay Slater, Missing Apprentice Bricklayer Last Seen in Remote Tenerife Village of Masca

Lucy Law, the closest friend of Jay Slater, has broken her silence, shedding light on the search for the missing teenager who disappeared in Tenerife nearly three weeks ago.

Lucy recently shared a poignant snapshot on social media, capturing a moment when she and Jay were together, smiling for a selfie.

Jay, a 19-year-old apprentice bricklayer, was last seen on June 17 around 8 am.

He and Lucy had attended a rave in Playa de las Americas before Jay headed back alone to a remote Airbnb in Masca.

His distressing call to Lucy revealed he was lost and running low on essentials, with his phone barely functional at 1% battery.

Despite intense efforts by Spanish authorities concentrated around Masca and the Rural de Teno National Park, where Jay’s phone last pinged, the search was abruptly halted on June 30, leaving Jay’s family grappling with uncertainty.

This premature end prompted Jay’s family to consider funding an independent search party to continue efforts.

Juan García, an army reservist and private investigator, criticized the early termination of the search, emphasizing that Jay might still be alive, sustaining himself with rainwater and foraged food.

He urged Jay’s family not to lose hope, advocating for further search initiatives beyond the initial efforts.

Events Leading Up to Disappearance

Jay had been attending the NRG festival in Tenerife and was last in contact with Lucy after missing his transportation back from the event.

His disappearance triggered a mountain rescue operation, initially focused on the rugged terrain of north-west Tenerife.

Missteps and Renewed Focus

A false sighting in south Tenerife briefly diverted police resources, wasting crucial time before refocusing efforts back to the north-western area.

Jay’s movements before his disappearance included returning to Masca with two British acquaintances after the Playa de las Americas rave, highlighting the complex circumstances surrounding his vanishing.

Ongoing Investigation

Despite the suspension of the formal search, Spanish authorities assured the public that the investigation into Jay Slater’s disappearance remains active, underscoring the commitment to uncovering the truth behind this unsettling case.
