Rugby Star Levi Davis Goes Missing in Spain
According to Davis’ friend Richard Squire, who lives in Ibiza, Davis left alone for Barcelona with only a small backpack, saying he was going to see friends. He reportedly had no clothes or cash with him when he boarded a boat to the mainland.
Davis was last seen when he recorded a video at an Irish pub in Barcelona on October 29. As Squire told The Sun, “He announced suddenly that he was going to meet friends in Barcelona. But he didn’t say who they were and we haven’t heard from him since I received a video from the Irish pub on October 29.”
The star’s mother, Julie, told The Sun, “Levi has been quite down lately and the manner in which he has disappeared has left us all very worried. He left everything behind in Ibiza and just upped and left. He told me he wanted some space to clear his mind and left behind medication he was taking.”
Davis Competed on The X Factor: Celebrity
In 2019, Davis competed on The X Factor: Celebrity. He was part of a group called Try Star, which also included fellow rugby players Thom Evans and Ben Foden. The group placed fifth during the competition, which was won by reality star Megan McKenna.
Currently, Davis plays rugby as a wing for the Worthing Raiders. In 2020, he came out as bisexual, telling his teammates that he’s known since he was 18. Davis told the Daily Mail that he had felt “a sense of shame, because I felt, and still do, as though I’m not normal.” The struggle led him to drink heavily.
When speaking to The Sun, Davis’ mother urged her son or anyone who’s seen him “to get in touch to put our minds at rest as everyone who loves him is frantic with worry.”
