During the clip, he claimed that there was “no way” it was searched properly, and added: “I don’t buy into the conspiracy theories, I don’t buy into someone took Jay. When you come and stand on this terrain, if that lad was heading for the coast I honestly think he’s had a bit of misfortune.

“He’s had a fall, he’s had an accident or he’s dehydrated and passed out. I feel he’s in this ravine, in this area of Tenerife . . . missing – I honestly believe that.”

Their original statement said: “While this case falls outside the jurisdiction of UK policing, we have made an offer of support to the Guardia Civil to see if they need any additional resources. They have confirmed that at this time they are satisfied that they have the resources they need, but that offer remains open and they will contact us should that position change.”
