His comments come as the family’s desperate search for the Brit teen approaches the fourth week with no answers about where he is.

Police called off the search last Sunday after the mammoth hunt leaving Jay’s family “heartbroken and devastated.”

Glen said: “I don’t know if they’re following up every single lead. I feel like marching down there myself and bursting into the police station.

“What are they actually doing now, the police, I mean they’re not searching with the helicopter are they?

“Are they doing door to door inquiries or sitting there looking at CCTV images?”

Cops used sniffer dogs, drones, a helicopter, dozens of volunteers and mountain rescue experts but to no avail.

Jay’s devastated uncle vowed: “We’re still holding onto hope – we have to because we don’t know. 

“It’s just torture every day. It’s got to a point now where the sadness has gone and it’s just anger.”

Jay’s friend Lucy Law claims he called her shortly before 9am on June 17 to tell her that he was “lost in the middle of nowhere”, desperate for a drink and had one per cent battery left on his phone.

Glen said that if he had got lost or hurt on a trail he would have been found by now.”


He said: “I’ve been thinking third party involvement from the start.”

Glen also said today he was “baffled” by the police decision to rule out two men who Jay spent the night with at a £40-a-night Airbnb before he vanished.

He said: “Why would two lads hire a villa up here? They’re down on the strip, you know what it’s like down there.

“There’s millions of apartments and hotels down there in Los Cristianos and Las Americas.

“Straight away, that’s just suspicious in itself.

“Then apparently one who has been found came out and said he arrived alive and left alive.

“That line in itself is suspicious.

“The fact he has come out and said all his mates have left him and he had nowhere to go, he was 10 minutes from his apartment in Los Cristianos.

“He’s not stupid. If he didn’t have a room key he could have gone to reception for a replacement.”

Spanish cops have spoken to both men already and cleared them to return to the UK, dubbing them “irrelevant” to the investigation.

But there have been calls for police to speak to them again amid the ongoing mystery of Jay’s disappearance.

The Sun revealed one of the mystery men as Ayub Qassim, who insists he has nothing to hide.

The second, known only as ‘Jonny Vegas’, has not come forward.

They drove Jay to the remote cottage in the mountains, high above the colourful strip of Tenerife’s club scene, after meeting him at a music festival.

Cops in Tenerife said officers would continue to investigate the case if any major tip-offs or information comes in.
