In truly heartwarming news, a child who featured in the Missing People Choir’s appeal on Britain’s Got Talent final has been found.
As the group performed, photos and names of missing people were shown above the stage, reports The Mirror.
And the appeal has brought some joy after a 13-year-old boy – who remains anonymous – saw his photo and was reunited with his family.

The choir is made up of relatives and friends of people who have gone missing and was formed by the Missing People charity.
Co-founder of Missing People Choir, Clare Cook, said:
We are delighted to announce that a 13-year old missing child who we appealed for on Britain’s Got Talent saw his appeal and called his mum.
He is now home safe and well.
Another ‘significant lead’ has also been reported to the charity’s helpline in the search for Tom Moore – missing for 14 years – after images of him were also shown during their performances.

The group eventually lost in the competition’s grand final to pianist Tokio Myers, but reduced the judges to tears during their audition performance of I Miss You, written by one of the group’s members.
Since their first audition in April, the choir have managed to raise an impressive £7,000.
