By Harry Mottram: The friends and family of missing ex-Bath rugby player Levi Davis are no more the wiser of his whereabouts following his disappearance on October 29th last year.
Now a video has emerged of him speaking shortly before he mysteriously vanished in Barcelona. It was unearthed by a private detective working for his family on the missing rugby star.
In the video he said: “I am now not safe. By doing this I am not safe…this is me taking my power back.” The 24-year-old and former X-Factor contestant went on to explain that criminals were blackmailing him over a film he had been duped into making previously while drugged according to reports. His Instagram video was deleted shortly before he disappeared.
ITV News reported the private detective Mr Burrows as saying: “I believe the video. You can tell he’s not on under the influence. He’s not lying. He was recalling what happened. He was worried for his family. Levi was scared, he was paranoid as anything. He was being blackmailed. He had sober discussions about how scared he was.”
His passport was found near the docks in Barcelona giving rise to speculation he had drowned but no body was found. Last seen at an Irish bar in the Catalan city CCTV captured him walking near La Rambla towards the Hard Rock Café where he vanished.
In other reports in the Spanish media he was reported to be in debt to Somali gangsters to the tune of £100,000.
A £10,000 reward is being offered for information which leads to his discovery.
In 2020 Davis left Bath Rugby to play for Worthing Raiders in the National League 2 South before switching to Henley Hawks.
