Spain attacks: police say reports missing boy has been found are false


Reports that a seven-year-old boy missing since Thursday’s terrorist attack in Barcelona had been found alive in hospital are not true.

El País reported on Saturday that Julian Alessandro Cadman had been located in hospital. However, Catalan police denied the report in a tweet from its English language account.

Julian, who has dual British and Australian citizenship, became separated from his mother during the chaos on Las Ramblas on Thursday.

Theresa May, the prime minister, spoke about the case after Julian’s grandfather Tony Cadman, a British man living in Australia, appealed for information .

May said on Friday that British authorities were urgently looking into reports of a child believed missing, who is a British dual-national, but did not name him.

Cadman said Jom, his daughter-in-law, had been injured in the attack in Las Ramblas and that she was in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

He left Sydney on Friday to travel to Spain.

It has been reported that the boy and his mother previously lived in Kent. Cadman posted a picture of Julian wearing a uniform from a British nursery school.
