Spanish media reports that Las Ramblas terror attack boy has been ‘found’ are FALSE

MISSING: Julian Cadman

REPORTS in the Spanish media that Julian Cadman, the seven-year-old boy of dual British and Australian nationality who was reported missing after the terror attack on Barcelona, had been found are false say police.

Several Spanish national newspapers and television websites had claimed that he had been ‘found alive’ in hospital in Barcelona.

When the Spanish media reports surfaced the police force, Mossos tweeted:


The mother, who was with the boy, was among the injured during the terror attack which saw 13 people killed and more than 100 injured on the  popular tourist street.

On Friday afternoon, UK Prime Minister Theresa May had said,: “Sadly, I must tell you that we do believe that a number of British nationals were caught up in the attack.

“We’re urgently looking into reports of a child believed missing, who is a British dual national.

“The Foreign Office is offering consular assistance to those who were involved in the attack and their families, and are working urgently to see if there are others who need their help.”

Spanish police  have also revealed that they have reported two un-namedjournalists for interferring with their investigations by accessing a sealed-off house.


Spanish authorities are still hunting for a 22-year-old Moroccan-born man, Younes Abouyaaqoub, who they now suspect was driving the van. 

Police previously believed another suspect, Moussa Oukabir, was the van driver.
