Lancashire Police say they have offered support to emergency services in Spain amid the search for missing teenager Jay Slater.

Jay, 19, from Oswaldtwistle, went missing during a holiday in Tenerife. He disappeared in an attempt to walk back to his accommodation after missing a bus.

He was last heard from on Monday when he called his friend, Lucy Law.

Jay had attended the NRG music festival on the island with two friends before his disappearance.

The search party has focused its efforts on a ravine near to where he was last heard from.

Search and rescue personnel carefully combed through dead palm trees covering a river at the bottom of the hillside near to a property he had reportedly been driven to.

The owner of the Airbnb property he was reportedly driven to, who gave her name as Ophelia, told reporters she saw Mr Slater walk up the road past her property but did not see him again after that – describing the situation as worrying.

Lancashire Police have this evening issued a statement regarding the case, saying they have offered their support to Spanish police.

A spokesman said: "First and foremost, our thoughts are with Jay's family at this time. They must be going through the most distressing ordeal not knowing what has happened to their loved one.

"We have specialist officers who are continuing to support Jay's family.

"Whilst 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.

"Once again, our thoughts remain with Jay's family and friends at this distressing time."

Rescue teams on the Canary island appeared to make no breakthroughs after another long day of searches.

Jay's mum, Debbie Duncan, who flew to Tenerife on Tuesday, said searching for her son was “an absolute living nightmare”.

Canarian Weekly editor, Chris Elkington, says mum Ms Duncan is staying at her apartment as she ‘doesn't want to be the person who finds him.'

On the fifth day of the hunt for Jay, search teams paid close attention to a river called Barranco Madre del Agua at the bottom of a ravine, where personnel with sticks carefully searched through fallen dead palm trees.
