Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Liam Hampson's body was found on the floor of a Barcelona nightclub after an apparent fall, local media reported. (Read More Here).

He had been travelling in Europe with a group including National Rugby League (NRL) players, who reported him missing.

The 24-year-old's family say they are "heartbroken" by his death, which they described as an accident.

Mr Hampson played in the Queensland Cup for the Redcliffe Dolphins, a team that will enter Australia's top-tier NRL next season.

He had become separated from his friends when leaving the Sala Apollo nightclub in the early hours of Tuesday local time, his family said on social media.

Relatives had asked for help in searching for him, after he was not seen for more than 24 hours.

Barcelona police say Mr Hampson's body was found by employees around midday on Wednesday, the Brisbane Times reported.

Officers believe Mr Hampson accidentally fell from a height of about 10m inside, the report said.

Mr Hampson's father Brett said the family was devastated.

"Liam had a heart of gold... words cannot express our grief," he wrote on social media.

The family said their thoughts were with the group of friends travelling with Mr Hampson - which included several top-tier players - who had searched for him.

"[You] made sure his last days were the best of his life," his sister, Tiarna Hampson, said.

Mr Hampson started his semi-professional career with the Tweed Seagulls in 2019 before joining the Dolphins this year.

After a 30 hour search, Barcelona Police confirmed early Thursday AEDT that a lifeless body believed to be Hampson has been found at the venue. 

'This morning, nightclub staff where Liam was seen for the last time, found a body on the floor in an area of the nightclub, Sala Apolo,' a police statement said. The Spanish newspaper El Mundo reported police believe Hampson may have fallen from a height of 10 metres.

Hampson's father and sister have since confirmed the sad news in heartbreaking social media posts. 'Waking up to the news no one wants to hear, we are devastated to find out that Liam had an accident and sadly has not survived,' his dad Brett posted on Facebook.

'We are heartbroken to say the least. Liam had a heart of gold and was a much loved son, brother, grandson, uncle and friend. Words can not express our grief.

'We can not thank his mates enough for being there with Liam having the time of his life and assisting in the search for our boy. Our thoughts are with them.'

Hampson's sister Tiarna posted a similar tribute hours after she issued a desperate appeal to find him. 'We are so heartbroken,' she posted.

'Liam was the best brother I ever could of asked for and made me a better person. We cannot express our grief.The family has requested privacy as they deal with the heartbreaking loss.  

Hours earlier, Brimson launched a desperate appeal to find Hampson.

'Hasn't been able to be contacted and no one has seen him for 24 hours ... was travelling with a group and very out of character, any info would be greatly appreciate,' The Queensland Origin star captioned a photo of Hampson wearing the clothes he was last seen wearing - a black t-shirt and light coloured shorts and baseball cap.

'Please do not message me unless you have any help or info. We are busy trying to message family members etc. Thanks!' 

Riki also reposted the photo with a message begging for help to find him, which was also shared by the Broncos.

'Please help or share this [message] it's very scary for all of us he's our best mate we want to find him,' Riki wrote on his Instagram.
