A TikTok detective on the hunt for missing Brit Jay Slater has made a shocking claim about what might have happened to the 19 year old.

Jay vanished on 17 June after heading from a rave to a secluded Airbnb in Tenerife's mountains with two men. The teen, hailing from Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, had shared a Snapchat video of himself at Casa Abuela Tina, near the village of Masca, just before his last phone call to friend Lucy Mae Law.

The official search for him was called off a fortnight ago, nearly two weeks after his disappearance, with his last known whereabouts half a mile north of Masca village.

However, family, mates and TikTok users have continued the hunt, with one of the most prominent among them taking to the social media platform to make a massive claim. Known on the web as ChristopherTenerife or simply Chris, the ex-pat Briton posted a video of himself scouring a large part of the mountainous area.

In the video, he insisted that there was "no way" it was properly searched, 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.", reports the Daily Star.

"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."

Two days after these emotional words, it was reported that the Guardia Civil, who ceased their search for the young man after less than two weeks, received an offer to assist from British police.

Lancashire Police initially volunteered to help the Spanish authorities when the search commenced and the force reiterated that its “position remains the same” when questioned by the Daily Express this week.

The force initially said in a statement: "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."

In a more recent statement, they reinforced: "Our position remains the same as per the statement in June. We continue to support the family."
