Jay Slater cops find ANOTHER missing Brit while searching gorge for Tenerife teen as they rescue trapped hiker

The unnamed hiker, 51, was found by police in Asomada Canyon on Friday as they searched for Jay. 

Cops said the hiker had gone into an area of “difficult access” that is not “suitable for travel”.

After he failed to return to the start point after several hours, locals alerted teams already combing the area for Jay, 19.

Police added: “Tired and disoriented, he was located by the agents and the rescue team who helped him get out of the ravine.”

Drones, sniffers dogs and helicopters have been searching the Rural de Teno National Park and its surroundings in northern Tenerife since Jay vanished more than a week ago.

Much of the hunt has been focussed on the unforgiving 2,000ft “badlands” Masca ravine.

It is where his phone last pinged a nearby cell tower at 8.50am on June 17.

Apprentice bricklayer Jay, from Lancashire, headed to Masca with two British men at the end of a three-day rave he flew to Tenerife to attend.

Jay stayed at their rented Airbnb for a couple of hours before trying to make his way back to his holiday accommodation.

He had made a final frantic call to friend Lucy Law last Monday morning.

Jay told his pal he was lost in the middle of nowhere with no water and had just one per cent battery on his phone.

Yesterday, police expanded their searchto an “immense” barren landscape north of where he was last seen.

Civil Guard officers confirmed forest trails and tracks north of the gorge in Teno Rural Park were also now being looked at as the ongoing search expanded to other areas.

It comes after Jay’s distraught dad broke down in tears as he told The Sun how his family are going through a “living hell”.

Warren, 55, said: “I just want him to be found. I just want my son back, end of. 

“What more is there, it’s been a week now, a week of nothing. So somebody somewhere must’ve found out something. Somebody.

“It is a living hell, unless you’re going through it, you cannot explain.

“Please, please please, if anybody knows anything just come forward and help us.

Jay Slater’s family have shared a grainy CCTV image they believe could be him

“I don’t know if anything undertoward has happened to Jay. One minute he was here, next minute he’s disappeared.

“I don’t believe he’s still in that mountain. The police have put every effort into finding him. It’s bleak and barren.

“The authorities have done everything they can in the search, everybody is up there looking for him.”

Warren has been putting up missing person posters in the village of Santiago del Teide.

The tearful dad has also been sharing a grainy CCTV image he believes could be his son.

It shows a mystery figure walking past a church in Santiago del Teide last Monday at around 6pm – hours after Jay was reported missing.

The village is around 7km from the Masca village Jay vanished from one week ago.

Police are yet to confirm whether as a potential sighting – but Jay’s family are praying it is.

Jay’s mum said a man had come forward to say he saw someone matching her son’s description sitting on a bench with two men in the same area.
