‘Picture being painted of Jay Slater is just not true’, says employer of British teen missing in Tenerife | UK News | Sky News

PH Build Group, which employs Mr Slater as an apprentice bricklayer, said it had to delete a Facebook post about the teenager because people replied with “negative comments and conspiracy theories”.

Since he went missing, rumours and conspiracy theories about his disappearance have circulated online, with social media users speculating on platforms including TikTok and Facebook.
“The picture being painted of him is just not true. The fact is he’s a 19-year-old lad missing in a foreign country. He needs to be back home where he belongs. Come on Jay we are all praying for you.”
At the weekend his mother Debbie Duncan thanked those who had donated, before adding: “We have not yet withdrawn any funds and are currently covering the expenses, such as the trip to Tenerife and accommodation, ourselves.”
On Sunday officers searching for Mr Slater could be seen circling two structures at the bottom of a ravine in Rural de Teno Park – where his phone last pinged before it ran out of battery.
