Jay disappeared after making a frantic phone call on Monday to pal Lucy Law to tell her he was stranded in the “middle of nowhere”.

Panicked Jay, facing a 10-hour walk back to their hotel, told her he needed water and only had one per cent of battery left on his phone.

It sparked a desperate round-the-clock search for the Lancashire teen, with his heartbroken mum and family jetting out to the island to join the hunt.

Rescue efforts have turned their focus to an area known locally as “the badlands”, scouring a 2,000ft ravine in a remote park.

Pictures from the scene show cops, firefighters, volunteers and sniffer dogs scanning the desolate Teno Nature Reserve, Jay’s last known location.

Locals and experts have warned of the treacherous conditions in the area – where the air is “thin”, temperatures change rapidly and the mountains drop sharply to the water below.

Jay’s mum Debbie today slammed the investigation into her son’s disappearance for not allowing British cops to contribute.

On Friday Lancashire Constabulary offered to help Spain’s Guardia Civil in their efforts to find the teenager.

But local police rejected the bid and insisted they have the “resources” required to find him.

The mum also told The Guardian she spent eight hours in a police station as they revealed plans for ramping up the rescue effort.
