Missing kids found safe after one of them spotted himself on Channel 5 TV show

Two teens have been found safe and well after featuring on the show

Two teens have been found after appearing on a TV show about missing people - with one approaching police after seeing his own appeal.

Channel 5 TV show Vanished: The Search for Britain’s Missing, hosted by Dan Walker, aired last night (8 November) and shared appeals for information about several missing people, working in conjunction with the police and charity Missing People.

In an update on social media, Walker has revealed that teens Daniel Wawrzynczak and Grace Fisher have been found after their stories appeared on the show.

Wawrzynczak had been missing from his home in Chadshunt in Warwickshire for two weeks, but spoke to police after watching the show.

While Fisher, from Gillingham in Kent, has also been found safe and well after being missing since Friday 13 October.

In a clip shared on X, formerly known as Twitter, Walker said: “Hello, some amazing news from last night’s Vanished - two of the teenagers that featured: Daniel Wawrzynczak, who’s 15 years old, and 16-year-old Grace Fisher, have both been found safe and well.

“Amazingly, Daniel was actually watching the programme.”

In a statement, he added: "This is amazing news. We are so relieved that these young people have been found and are now safe and well. The whole point of Vanished is to help families whose loved ones have gone missing and we are delighted that we have been able to be part of that, working closely with Missing People and police around the UK. The whole Vanished team are really proud to be working on a programme that has a real purpose and is making a genuine impact on peoples’ lives."

Confirming the good news about Wawrzynczak, Detective Inspector Paul Sartoris, who was involved in the search, said in a statement: "Thank you to everyone who shared our appeals from Warwickshire Police and amplified the message. Daniel has returned home safe and well."

Host Dan Walker gave an update following last night’s show.

Missing People said it had received a ‘a record number of calls since the series returned to Channel 5 on Wednesday 1st November’ receiving one call every minute it was on the air, and continuing to remain ‘very busy’ after.

Missing People's Chief Executive Jo Youle said: "The response to the show has been astonishing. We have reported sightings of people who have gone missing and have also been able to help people who are either missing right now or thinking of going missing, as well as families worried about their loved ones."

Vanished: The Search for Britain’s Missing is back on Channel 5 next Wednesday (15 November) at 8.00pm.
