Police are reportedly investigating two possible sightings of missing rugby player Levi Davis near the spot where he was last seen nearly three weeks ago.
This comes after a witness contacted the 24-year-old’s family to claim they saw him on Monday in a square near the city’s Arc de Triomf monument.
Monday’s sighting occurred in Placa Sant Agusti Vell – Old Saint Agustin Square in English – according to local press.
The other square has been identified as Placa del Canonge Colom, behind La Boqueria and near to the La Rambla boulevard.
‘It has not been possible to confirm the information yet, and the search is continuing.’
A spokesman for the regional Mossos d’Esquadra police force in Barcelona confirmed it was aware of the information but said yesterday morning there was no update.
She added: ‘Our investigation is ongoing.’
Levi’s mum Julie travelled to Barcelona earlier this month to search for her son, who vanished after taking a boat from Ibiza to Barcelona.
She confirmed during her short stay in the Catalan capital he left Ibiza with just 40 euros on him.
Speaking a fortnight after he went missing, Julie revealed police had told her Levi had not used either of his two bank cards or his phone for two weeks. She also said his phone signal was last picked up around Barcelona’s main train station Sants late at night on October 29.
Levi’s sister, Candeece Balfour, 23, admitted she is scared about his wellbeing and said: ‘I just want to tell him that I love him.’
