Friends and family of those that attended the Ariana Grande concert Monday night in Manchester, England say they still cannot find their loved ones following a deadly terrorist attack outside the event.

The U.K. Telegraph reported Tuesday that 14 people are confirmed missing after family and friends said they could not be located after a male suicide bomber blew himself up outside of Manchester Arena killing 22 people and injuring 59 others.

According to reports in the U.K. many children are among the fatalities.

One of the youngest missing reported concert goers was 8-year-old Saffie Rose Rousos. Saffie went to the concert with her mother Lisa and sister Ashlee. Ashlee was one of the injured at the concert and was treated for shrapnel wounds at Royal Bolton Hospital, Metro notes. Saffie was confirmed dead Tuesday morning.

The attack is the worst the UK has experienced since 56 people were slain in the 7/7 bombings in 2005. Law enforcement is currently looking at whether the bomber acted on his own or was part of a greater terrorist cell network.

The Telegraph lists the names and photos of specific missing Ariana Grande concert goers that friends and family originally posted on social media to help them in their search.
