  • Trained dogs join search for missing UK teen in Tenerife
  • Last phone signal traced near Teno National Park
  • Teen’s father appeals for local help in Santiago del Teide

Specially trained canines have arrived in Tenerife as the search for missing British teenager Jay Slater approaches its ninth day.

Police said that fresh resources had been brought in to locate the 19-year-old from Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire.

The Guardia Civil, whose ground searches had focused on the area where his last mobile phone connection was detected, stated that their efforts “are not being scaled back.”

They said the sniffer dogs, highly trained to cover broad distances, would arrive from Madrid later.

The mayor of Santiago de Tiede, where Mr Slater’s father has been posting posters seeking information on his son’s disappearance, has offered sympathy to the family.

Emilio Navarro responded, “As a father, I understand. “We are using all our resources and means to find him.”

“Invest in your future with Webull UK – get started with free shares.”

The apprentice bricklayer was staying in an apartment in the north of the Spanish island with pals he met at the NRG festival, but after missing the bus the following day, he called a friend to say he was going to walk the 10-hour distance back.

Mr Slater also informed her that his phone had a 1% battery, he had “no idea” where he was, and he needed water.

On Monday, police cars were spotted near the entrance to a mountain track in the Rural de Teno National Park, close to where Mr Slater’s phone last pinged.

Mr Slater’s father has been pleading for assistance from the local community in Santiago del Teide, where the family travelled on an unverified word of a probable local sighting.

Warren Slater stated that someone “must know something”.

“I simply want him to be found. “That’s the end,” he added.
