| Last updated
The mother of missing X Factor star Levi Davis has confirmed police are investigating reports of a man in the water in Barcelona.
Davis, who appeared on Simon Cowell's singing show in 2019, was last seen when he left The Old Irish Pub on La Rambla at 10.05pm on 29 October.
He has not had any contact with his friends or family since shortly before midnight on October 30, leading police to conduct an investigation into his whereabouts.
Today (19 April), Davis' mum, Julie, released a statement to the Mail Online to share an update on the situation, explaining that investigators have tracked her son's last known movements in a bid to find out what happened to him.
"Extensive work has been done to track Levi's movements on the night of the 29 Oct and they (the police) are able to confirm that following his last reported sighting at the Hard Rock Café, Levi walked back down La Rambla and entered the commercial port.
"His phone last registered in the early hours of Saturday 30 October with a phone tower at the far end of the port closest to the sea entrance," she said.
Julie continued: "Reports of a man in the water by staff on a cruise ship entering the port at 6.30am on 30 Oct have been investigated.
"Four members of staff confirmed seeing a man in the water with specific details including him asking for help in English and the colour of his clothing.
"A life jacket was thrown from the ship and emergency Sea and Air rescue services searched the area but they were unable to find him.
"The investigation is still very much ongoing and we are hoping that the Port Police will authorise and carry out a further search of the waters and other inaccessible areas of the port.
"We would like to thank the Mosso d'esquadra and the British Consulate in Barcelona for their continued hard work.
"No further comment will be made at this time. We continue to ask that the press respect the feelings and privacy of Levi's family and friends at what is a very emotionally distressing time."
