As part of the investigation, the firm has said it will pay a £10,000 reward for information leading to Levi being found.
His mum Julie said: “We are very grateful to Gavin and his team for volunteering their time, expertise and the reward fund to help find Levi.
“We are still worried sick about him and just want him home safely. Hopefully, this extra support will encourage people with any information to come forward.”
Levi was last seen leaving an Irish pub in Barcelona on the same night on CCTV almost six weeks ago.
His worried family travelled out to Spain to help with the search several weeks ago but, despite some possible sightings of Levi, none have been confirmed as him.
Julie has also been told her son’s phone and bank accounts have still not been used since the last confirmed sighting.
It comes after a video message sent by Levi to her on the day he went missing has been released.
In the short clip, he is seen on the ferry from Ibiza to Barcelona.
Taken in the middle of the seven-hour trip, Levi’s voice is barely audible over the heavy winds, but he can be heard saying: “Hi mum… it’s beautiful.”
Last month, a witness contacted Levi’s family claiming they had seen him in Barcelona’s Placa Sant Agusti Vell.
It is believed that the same witness said they had seen him in another square near the city’s Arc de Triomf monument.
The spot is just a six-minute walk from the Old Irish Pub where Levi was seen leaving on October 29.
Levi made the journey to Barcelona alone after staying in Ibiza for a week, arriving in the city at around 7pm.
The former Bath winger had been suffering from depression and had gone on holiday following a knee injury.
His passport was discovered at the port area in Barcelona almost two weeks ago, as the search continues.
Levi’s mother Julie said she hasn’t heard anything from Spanish cops since the discovery of the passport.
His family said they received a tip that Levi was spotted looking “lost and confused” in a homeless area of Barcelona.
Levi’s foster mother claimed he had mentioned a blackmail threat in a since-deleted video shortly before he disappeared.
The rugby player-turned-reality star performed on X Factor: Celebrity in 2019 with fellow rugby players Ben Foden and Thom Evans as part of the group Try Star.
In 2020, he starred in the E4 dating series Celebs Go Virtual Dating.
