Jay Slater's loved ones have issued an update as the search for the missing teen enters its fourth day.

The 19-year-old went missing on the island of Tenerife on Monday (June 17). He had been vacationing on the Spanish island with friends while attending the NRG music festival.


However, after opting to stay out with people he'd met on Sunday evening, Jay's friend - Lucy Mae Law - revealed that she received a troubling call from Jay at around 8:15AM on Monday morning.

"[Jay] rang me at about 8 o'clock morning saying his phone was on 1 per cent, he said 'I don't know where I am, I need a drink and my phone is about to die,'" Lucy recalled to the Manchester Evening News.

The teenager was reported missing less than an hour later, with his mom and brother flying out to Tenerife on Tuesday morning.

As the search enters its fourth day, dozens of locals and volunteers have joined the search for Jay, as local authorities are utilizing search dogs, rescue teams, helicopters, and drones in an effort to locate Jay.

The search has once again returned to the mountainous area around Rural de Teno Park, which is where Jay was last known to have been.

In an update shared on a Facebook page dedicated to finding Jay, Lucy Mae wrote: "Still no updates, when it reaches 8:30am it’s been 3 days. Tomorrow, we need as many people as possible up there searching for him please.

"We will be up there again first thing, however a search party is going to be necessary to search everywhere as the area is very big.

"If you can help, please do, we need to get him home."

Another post, shared by the page admin Rach Louise Harg, states in full: "If Jay was in and around the area local as in the mountains or able to tell us he would of told someone and asked for help by now he won’t be still wondering around in the mountains or by beaches so please be aware there are others out there walking about..

"The areas in the mountains and other sightings have been searched and now have been told that as of tomorrow it will be a bigger investigation!!

"We are all so exhausted now and please can everyone also try to relax and rest with the messages it’s draining the police here are doing all the can and as tomorrow will be 72 hours he’s been missing it moves on to bigger and more serious things let’s just have a rest

"Unless it’s something very important that needs to be reported then please do !! We are all Mentally physically and emotionally drained my legs are dead I need food and we just can’t do no more this evening.

"Tomorrow we go again and like I said we WILL find him. Thank you."
