Child found after Missing People Choir performance on Britain's Got Talent 2017

A 13-year-old boy who was featured by the Missing People Choir on Britain's Got Talent show has been found safe and well.

The charity say that the boy got in touch with his mum after seeing the Missing People choir appeal on the talent show on Saturday night, June 3rd 2017.

The group finally lost in the competition’s grand final to pianist Tokio Myers, but they brought the judges to tears during their audition performance of I Miss You, written by one of the group’s members.

Clare Cook, co-founder of Missing People Choir, said:

“We are delighted to announce that a 13-year old missing child who we appealed for on Britain’s Got Talent during the Missing People Choir’s performance saw his appeal and called his mum.

He is now home safe and well.”

Since their first audition in April, the choir have raised nearly £7,000 through their fundraising campaign.
