Lee Boxell will be among many that are remembered as a missing people charity marks its 25th anniversary with a special carol service.

The Missing People charity will hold its annual carol service next month in Trafalgar Square with patron Sir Trevor McDonald OBE and the Missing People Choir.

The choir comprises singers who have experienced a loved one disappear, alongside supporters of the independent charity, as we draw nearer to Christmas Day.

They will sing ‘I Miss You’, a song which was first performed at their carol service in 2014 and is due be released on December 7.

This year marks 30 years since 15-year-old schoolboy Lee disappeared from Sutton without a trace.

It still remains unclear what happened to him after he went missing on September 10, 1988, but his parents remain determined to find out what happened to their son.

His dad Peter, now 71, was among a dozen singers who performed ‘I Miss You’ for the Missing People Choir on Britain’s Got Talent last year in a moving tribute.

And a documentary on Lee’s disappearance is currently in production, scheduled to be released by Channel 5 sometime next year.

Lee will be one of many that the choir remembers on the night of December 10 during the carol service, scheduled to be held at St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square and hosted by Sir Trevor.

Tickets are still available, which will also feature music from the Royal Mail’s Mail Voice Choir, the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields, and readings from actor Monica Dolan as well as readings from families of those who have gone missing.

Missing People chief executive Jo Youle said: “Every 90 seconds, somebody in the UK is reported missing.

“Whilst most of us are enjoying what is traditionally a jolly time of year, there are thousands of families for whom Christmas is a poignant reminder of the fact that someone they love is missing from their lives.

“Our helpline will be open throughout the festive period to be their lifeline, and the Carol Service provides an important moment for people in the community to join together in hope and solidarity, and to think of those they are missing this Christmas.”

Sale proceeds and collection will go to the charity’s annual “Home for Christmas” campaign, which seeks to fund family support workers to be available for families over the festive period.
