THE sister of a Spaniard who confronted one of the London terrorists over the weekend has appealed for any information on his whereabouts. 

Ignacio Echeverria, from Madrid, is said to have been on his way home from a skate park on Saturday night when he attempted to defend a woman from one of the terrorists with his skateboard in Borough Market.

His friends say they last saw him lying on the pavement.

The 39-year-old’s family have been unable to locate him despite calling the Spanish consulate, police and hospitals in the area.

The HSBC worker is said to be 5ft 8ins tall and was wearing jeans, black Vans trainers and a dark top and gold chain.

His sister Isabel also lives in London and has not been able to find him.

The Red Cross in Madrid have now launched an appeal to locate him.

It said in a statement: “Ignacio was in the London Bridge area with friends when the terror attacks happened.

“He was last seen falling to the ground by the his friends after trying to defend one of the victims.

“He was wearing a gold chain, Vans black trainers, jeans and a black or dark top.

“He has a large scar above an eyebrow.”

London saw two attacks late on Saturday night.

Pedestrians were mowed down by a van on London Bridge before attackers stabbed a police officer and revellers around Borough Market with 12-inch knives.

Six were killed while more than 20 remain in a critical condition.
