    Britain's Got Talent - the Missing People Choir

    The lost boy behind Britain's Got Talent's most moving song ever: Devastated father talks about the teenager whose disapearance inspired the choir born from heartache

    To many, it was the poignant highlight of the evening, persuading even presenter Ant McPartlin to shed a tear.

    But for Peter Boxell, appearing on last nightís Britainís Got Talent had a truly personal resonance.

    For when the 70-year-old grandfather sang I Miss You with the mesmerising Missing People Choir, it was to perform a song he wrote himself in memory of a child who has been gone for nearly 30 years.

    Lee Boxell, his only son, disappeared on September 29, 1988, after telling his father he was going to watch Crystal Palace play just a few miles from their home in Cheam, Surrey.
    and

    Formed in 2014, The Missing People Choir is composed of individuals and families of people who have disappeared and is led by the Missing People charity.
