Susanna Reid leaves studio to console Levi Davis's mum as she breaks down in tears over missing son on GMB | The Sun

SUSANNA Reid held the hand of missing rugby star Levi Davis's mum on Good Morning Britain today as she broke down in tears.

Julie Davis is determined to keep the spotlight on son Levi's disappearance after he was last seen in Barcelona in October.





But the police investigation has thrown up frustratingly few leads, leaving the family no closer to understanding what happened to him.

Speaking today, Julie said: "There's always that mother's instinct. Just before he left, there was a message, I don't know, powers from above, that said to me 'give him a hug because you just don't know if this is going to be your last'…"

The devastated mum was overcome with emotion and began to cry, prompting an emotional Susanna to lean over and hold her hand.

The broadcaster reassured her: "There's so much effort being put into finding Levi. Police are on it, we've seen signs around on lampposts. Are you encouraged by how much people are doing to try and find Levi?"

Julie said: "I've had a lot of support from family, friends and of course private investigators been working very hard. The Spanish police have done their bit as well. Where it's been quite difficult is not to have information there; the language barrier. Going via the British Consulate, the feed back of news and updates is very slow.

“We got information back saying unfortunately it’s too late because the Spanish police had to go to court to get paperwork signed so they could access the CCTV.

“By the time they did get it all the video had been deleted. It’s very frustrating.”

As the show went to an ad break, Susanna made sure Julie was OK outside the studio.

When the camera returned, Ed Balls was left presenting solo behind the news desk.

Good Morning Britain reported private detective Gavin Burrows told the programme he feared Levi may have drowned in Barcelona port.

GMB said a man was in the water in distress in the port area close to a nearby cruise ship.

A search was carried out but no body was found and everyone was accounted for, at least on the cruise ship.

But it was some time later that the police realised Levi’s passport was found in that same area, said the programme.

The incident was also reported in Spanish media which said workers on the cruise ship had alerted the authorities someone was in the sea

But the search was suspended soon afterwards because none of the passengers was missing.

Levi made the journey to Barcelona alone after staying in Ibiza for a week, arriving in the city at around 7pm.

The rugby player-turned-reality star performed on X Factor: Celebrity in 2019 with fellow rugby players Ben Foden and Thom Evans as part of the group Try Star.

It was recently reported that Levi may have drowned after being hunted by criminals over a £100,000 debt.

The 24-year-old rugby player was last seen leaving an Irish pub in Barcelona on October 29 and police said his passport was found in the city’s port area.

His family hired a private investigator in a bid to find Levi amid reports his bank card and phone had not been used since he vanished.

But now it’s been reported Levi may have run up huge debts with Somali criminals as his party lifestyle spiralled out of control.

An unnamed member of the team of private detectives told La Vanguardia newspaper: “Davis came to Barcelona fleeing from these criminals.

“He had adopted a frenzied lifestyle and was in a very delicate situation. The truth is he was sure they were chasing him. 

“In fact he was convinced they had tried to poison him on one occasion.”

The amount he owed was put at around 115,000 euros – which is a little short of £102,000.
