A £10,000 reward has been offered in an attempt to trace the missing Bath winger who disappeared while on a night out with fellow players Ben Foden and Thom Evans in Barcelona. The former singer in the X Factor group Try Star was last spotted leaving the Old Irish Pub off the city’s famous La Rambla around 10 pm on October 29.
The 24-year-old had been holidaying in Europe after a knee injury to his anterior cruciate ligament cut short his rugby season.
Alongside the reward for any information, Levi’s worried family have reached out to a private investigator called Gavin Burrows to help trace him.
Meanwhile, the missing winger’s concerned mother Julie has travelled to Spain to aid in the search for her son.
Levi had previously been staying on the island of Ibiza, arriving in Barcelona the same day he went missing.
The Mirror reports that Levi’s departure from Ibiza was “sudden”, with the rugby player only packing a small amount of cash and leaving all his spare clothes and his passport.
Julie said: “Since then he hasn’t used his bank cards and he only had 40 euros on him.
“When I asked him where he would stay, he didn’t want to give me any address, he said he would be moving around and he was an adult.”
She later told the Spanish daily ABC he suffered from depression and had gone missing on previous occasions but for “no more than two or three days”.

She said: “He would always come back or we would find him but it’s been 12 days now and this is not normal. He must be disorientated or confused.”
Levi has now been missing for over a month with police in Spain confirming he has not been arrested or admitted to any hospitals.
A Mossos spokesman confirmed before the meeting between Levi’s mum and investigators: “When someone is formally reported missing we have emergency procedures which include checks to see if that person could be somewhere like a hospital or in police custody.”
Barcelona’s regional Catalan police force Mossos d’Esquadra is reported to have launched the investigation before waiting on Levi’s friends and family back home to officially report him as missing.

A friend of Levi’s reported him missing to authorities in Barcelona before an official missing person report was later filed in the UK.
The Mirror has identified the friend as Richard Squire, who resides in Ibiza and was with Levi until his “sudden” disappearance on October 29.
Mr Squire later launched a GoFundMe appeal to raise money so Levi’s family could travel to Spain.
He is believed to have told Spanish police that Levi may have left Ibiza to visit someone he had met online but officers have so far failed in attempts to access the rugby star’s password-protected social media accounts.
