One of missing Jay Slater’s colleagues has opened up about the teen claiming that the picture painted of him online is wrong.

PH Build Group, the company that employs 19-year-old Slater as an apprentice bricklayer, revealed it had to remove a Facebook post about the missing teenager due to “negative comments and conspiracy theories”.

The company has refuted the inaccurate portrayal of him online.

Slater, from Oswaldtwistle in Lancashire, was officially reported missing in Tenerife on Monday and since, rumours and conspiracy theories have been rife on social media platforms like TikTok and Facebook.

In a Facebook post, the firm where Jay works wrote: “Our Jay is still missing! We have decided to remove our last post due to all the negative comments and conspiracy theories.”

Slater had attended the NRG festival in the south of Tenerife on Sunday 16 June before heading to Masca with two individuals he met at the event.

His holiday companions haven’t seen him since last Sunday night, but he did speak to one of them on the phone Monday morning, telling her he was lost, needed water, and his phone was down to 1% charge.

During the brief phone call, he informed his friend Lucy Law that he had missed a bus back to his holiday accommodation and was trying to walk instead – a journey that would take 11 hours.

Masca local Ofelia Medina Hernandez was reportedly the last person to speak to the teen, informing him that a bus was scheduled for 10am after he inquired about its timing. She noted that he set off briskly before she later saw him “walking fast” as she drove by.
