Britain's Got Talent's The Missing People Choir are hopeful of reuniting more loved ones following the show.

The Missing People Choir is a community choir of people whose friends and family have gone missing.

Sharing some of their stories on stage at their audition, the members of the group revealed how many of them haven't heard from their loved ones for decades.

They went on to perform the original song “I Miss You” for the panel to huge praise.

And with four yeses, they won themselves a spot in the live shows and eventually the final.

Although the group didn't win the show, their performances have sparked a frenzy of new leads into the disappearance of their loved ones.

It was confirmed this week that a 13-year-old found safe and well that featured in one of the performances has been found safe and well.

Clare Cook, co-founder of Missing People Choir, told the Daily Mirror: “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.”

Clare has now revealed hopes of more results in the coming weeks after BGT provided a platform for appeals.

She said: "BGT has given us our biggest ever platform for publicity, which has enabled the choir, by singing with purpose, hope and honesty, to really reach out and touch people, encouraging them to take action in so many different ways.

"It takes raising awareness for missing people and the work of the charity to a whole new level.

"We know that others have been inspired to reach out for help, and hope that many more families will be reunited as a result.

"As our choir’s motto says 'Where words fail music speaks.'"

More information on missing persons can be found online from the Missing People charity.
