Specialist search dogs brought in to hunt for missing Jay Slater

Specialist search dogs have been drafted in from the Spanish capital Madrid to help in the hunt for British teenager Jay Slater.
The 19-year-old, from Oswaldtwistle near Blackburn in Lancashire, has been missing on the Spanish island since the morning of Monday 17 June.

He had been on a holiday with friends and was last heard from just around 8.30am that day, when he called his friend Lucy Law to say he was setting off to walk back to his accommodation after missing a bus.
The walk from Mr Slater’s last known location, Rural de Teno Park, would involve going through the mountainous area around the village of Masca, in the north of the island.
A statement from Tenerife police said: “The Civil Guard continues with the search device for the young British man who disappeared in the Masca neighbourhood, belonging to the municipality of Buenavista del Norte (Tenerife), in which different units of the Civil Guard participate.

“In addition, today several Canine Guides of the Civil Guard dispatched from Madrid with their canine agents specialized in the search for people on large areas of land, belonging to the Cynological Service of the Civil Guard.”
Last night, his family shared a blurry image of what they believe could be the missing teenager captured on CCTV in a nearby town 10 hours after he was first reported missing.
