Britain's Got Talent: Missing People Choir 'delighted' after boy found

A boy whose image was shown during the Missing People Choir's performance on Britain's Got Talent has been reunited with his family.

The 13-year-old contacted his mother after seeing his photo appear on screen during the live shows on ITV.

Clare Cook, co-founder of the Missing People Choir, said they were "delighted" with the news, adding: "He is now home safe and well.”

The boy's image was shown behind the Choir as they performed last Friday and Saturday, where they delivered emotional renditions of Birdy’s Wings and With You from Ghost: The Musical.

Their performances are said to have also led to a "significant lead" in the search for Tom Moore, who was 31 when he was reported missing in July 2003.

The Missing People Choir came eighth in the Britain's Got Talent final and have raised more than £7,000 since first appearing on the show.

The 2017 BGT competition was won by musician Tokio Myers.
