TRAGIC: Arthur’s body has been found after more than a week missing following the Mallorca floods

THE body of the young boy missing after Mallorca’s floods has been found.

This morning emergency teams found Arthur’s body next to the roundabout from Sant Llorenç to Son Carrió, the place his mum performed a dramatic rescue of his sister Ursula.

Arthur Robinson, aged between four and eight, went missing eight days ago during the floods which ravaged Mallorca.

His mum, Joana Lliteras , a 40-year-old pharmacist, died after she plucked her daughter Ursula from their car, which rapidly filled water, saving her life.

German cyclist Daniel Thielk kept Ursula safe, but Joana and Arthur could not be saved.

Arthur’s jacket and backpack were found last week by search and rescue teams and the search has now been widened to the land air and sea.

The family of Arthur and Joana penned an open letter to the media to thank them for their efforts in finding little Arthur.

They said at the time: “Despite the hard times we are going through, struggling with all our strength to overcome the toughest of trials of life; we can not fail to thank all those who continue to look for Arthur untiring.”

In total 13 people have now died in the floods, including a British couple, Antony Green, 77, and his wife Delia, 75.
