Julian Alessandro Cadman, an Australian boy with United Kingdom dual citizenship, was out walking with his mother, Jom Cadman, when terrorists plowed a van into the packed Las Ramblas street, leaving at least 13 dead and more than 100 injured.

13 people were killed and around 100 injured after a van crashed into a crowd of people in the popular Las Ramblas shopping street.

Another family friend, Sarah Auzner, wrote "we are beside ourselves with worry".

A few hours earlier, Spanish police had said: "Neither we were searching nor we have found any lost child in the Barcelona attack".

Jumarie is being treated in hospital for serious injuries - including broken legs - that she suffered in the van attack on Las Ramblas. His family described him as an "energetic, amusing and cheeky" child, and said they would remember him that way. "We are so blessed to have had him in our lives and will remember his smiles and hold his memory dear to our hearts", the family said.

The family also thanked everyone who assisted in search for Cadman. His family has our deepest sympathies at this very hard time.

Besides the Australian-British child, they include four Spaniards, two Portuguese, two Italians, an American, a Spanish-Argentinian and a Belgian.

The UK Foreign Office had also been providing assistance to the Cadman family.

"She and her son were in Barcelona to attend the wedding of a cousin from the Philippines when the incident happened", Philippine Foreign Ministry official Sarah Arriola said.
