COPS are said to be investigating two new sightings of missing X-Factor star Levi Davis after he was potentially spotted just minutes from the pub where he was last seen.
The rugby player's family reportedly received a tip that the 24-year-old was seen in a square near Barcelona's Arc de Triomf monument on Monday.
The same witness is said to have seen him a week earlier in another square near Barcelona’s La Boqueria Market – just a six-minute walk from the Irish pub where Levi was last seen.
Monday’s sighting was in Placa Sant Agusti Vell, according to reports.
The other square has been identified as Placa del Canonge Colom – behind La Boqueria and near to the La Rambla boulevard.
According to Cronica Global, Levi's family said: "A person claims to have seen Levi in Barcelona.

He had arrived in Barcelona that same day after getting on a ferry from Ibiza without any money, spare clothes or passport.
The missing 24-year-old has not used his bank cards since he vanished in the Catalan capital with only 40 euros in cash on him.
Spanish police said Levi's phone signal was last detected close to Barcelona's Sants mainline train station overnight on October 29, but the mobile has not been used since.
Levi's distraught mum Julie Davis previously flew out to the city to help track down her son, as theories around his disappearance continue to swirl.
She revealed he did not give her an address of where he was staying because he had planned to be "moving around".
The mum told Spanish Daily ABC he suffered from depression and had gone missing on previous occasions but for “no more than two or three days”.
She said: "He would always come back or we would find him but it’s been 12 days now and this is not normal. He must be disorientated or confused."
Police are understood to have confirmed Levi is not in hospital and has not been arrested as part of an "emergency" response to a missing persons report.
Levi's foster mother, Susanne Balfour, has also spoken out to Sky News about the Celebrity X-Factor contestant's disappearance.
She confirmed that he had mentioned a blackmail threat in a video posted on social media that has since been deleted.
Host Kay Burley asked her if the clip was linked to her foster son's sexuality, as Levi made history in 2020 when he was the first rugby union player to come out as bisexual while still playing.
Susanne replied: "He might just be frightened, he did say in that video that his life was in danger, I don't know whether he's running from something, I just don't know.
"Levi said he needed to get out of Ibiza, when his friend asked why he just said he needed to get out. He was actually on a ferry from Ibiza going to Barcelona, but that was the last thing he heard from him."

It explained the rugby ace has "struggled with his mental health for many years" and that his family were "extremely concerned for him."
