LATEST: The family of missing Cork man David Reynolds has confirmed that he has been found safe and sound. His family have thanked everyone who helped and supported the family during the search and said they are 'very relieved' he has been found.
EARLIER: A SEARCH is underway in Barcelona for a Cork man who failed to turn up for his flight home on Monday morning.
30-year-old David Reynolds from Bawnleigh, near Kinsale, had travelled to Barcelona with friends and was due to attend a match in the city on Sunday.
The group planned to fly home to Cork on Monday morning.
However, Mr Reynolds was not seen since he became separated from his friends on Las Ramblas in the centre of Barcelona on Sunday morning.
He failed to turn up at the match on Sunday afternoon, despite attempts by his friends to contact him. Hopes that he would turn up for his flight home on Monday morning also failed to materialise.
Police in Barcelona were alerted and they are searching for him.
The investigation into his disappearance has shown that his phone was last active in the tourist area of the city.
His phone has pinged at a number of locations on Las Ramblas on Sunday morning but the last ping was at 10.30am.
His cousin Marian Reynolds told The Echo that one transaction was made on his bank account on Monday and efforts are now being made to establish the location of the transaction.
Members of his family are flying out to Barcelona tomorrow morning to join other relatives who travelled there in recent days.
Marian said other members plan to travel out on Sunday if David has not been found.
His family and friends have shared his photo on social media channels and have urged anyone with contacts in Barcelona to share his image.
Marian said: “He is a very bubbly character and this really unusual, especially not to have contact with his dad. It is completely out of character for him.”
She said the family is very thankful to everyone who is lending their support to them in their search.
