A charity is hoping to be able to encourage missing people to come home by getting the nation singing.

Missing People has launched a campaign to raise funds to help bring missing people home this Christmas.

Following the Missing People Choir's success in the Britain's Got Talent final earlier this year, the charity isn't ready for the music to stop. 

Sing Them Home launched this week to encourage social media users to share a line of their favourite Christmas tune and nominate someone to take on their musical baton.

Two missing people returned home after the Missing People Choir's performance in the final of the popular television talent show.

The charity has challenged its supporters up and down the country to spread festive cheer and help bring more vulnerable missing people home.

Its challenge follows a simple share, donate, nominate pattern. All supporters have to do is upload a short video to their social account, singing a line from a Christmas classic and using the hashtag #SingThemHome

Clare Cook, Missing People Choir singer and co-founder, said: "After Britain's Got Talent, the Missing People Choir was so moved by the overwhelming support from the public, and especially pleased that two people were found as a result of the show."

Donations of £5 can be made to the campaign by texting SING05 to 70070.
