The UK Foreign Office has said reports in Spanish media that a British-Australian boy has been found are inaccurate.

Seven-year-old Julian Cadman was reported to have been located in hospital after being injured in the Barcelona terror attack on Thursday.

But a Foreign Office spokeswoman said British officials still believed the boy to be missing.

She said: “These reports are inaccurate, they are not correct.

“We are still in the same place as yesterday. We are confirming one British dual-national missing.”

Spanish newspaper El País said Catalan police had confirmed the missing boy was found in hospital.

The national publication claimed the Los Mossos d’Esquadra force said they had informed his father “from the first moment”.

And in a tweet, the force said: “Neither were were searching for nor have we found any lost child in the Barcelona attack. All the victims and injured have been located.”

It was unclear what this meant regarding the fate of the seven-year-old.

British officials still fear the child may have been caught up in the attack on Las Ramblas which claimed 13 lives and left 130 injured.

He is thought to have become separated from his mother as a van ploughed into crowds on the busy central boulevard.

His mother Jomarie Cadman was found in hospital in a serious but stable condition, but the boy’s family are behind a desperate appeal to locate him.

Grandfather Tony Cadman posted a photo of his grandson on Facebook and wrote: “My grandson, Julian Cadman, is missing. Please like and share. We have found Jom (my daughter in law) and she is (in a) serious but stable condition in hospital.

“Julian is seven years old and was out with Jom when they were separated, due to the recent terrorist activity. Please share if you have family or friends in Barcelona.”
