A seven-year-old Australian boy who became separated from his seriously injured mother in the Barcelona terrorist attack remains missing.

Please share, especially if you have family or friends in Barcelona. "Please, please share his picture so he can be with his family".

Another friend Megan Cameron posted online: "You never know who it may reach over there and anything we can do to help in the effort to locate him and reunite him with his Mum in hospital". "Wishing for the best to Andrew Cadman that he finds Jom and Julian both well", family friend Julie Tuckwell posted on Facebook.

Of the eight Australians impacted by events in Barcelona, Ms Bishop said four were injured, three required consular support and one is unaccounted for.

"A second woman, also from New South Wales, is in a serious condition in hospital".

'We could clearly hear thuds as the vehicle was running into people, and then a short time after that, obviously, several very loud sickening screams from the people involved down at street level, ' he said.

Firearms were removed from the scene and belts they were carrying are being treated as potential explosive devices.

In a statement released on Saturday afternoon, the Catalan police force said: "Neither [are] we were searching [for], nor we have found any lost child in the Barcelona attack".

Fifteen of them are in a critical condition.
