Thank you to everyone who took part!
The Big Tweet for Missing Children 2014 has now ended - it was a great success.
Results will soon follow, read below to find out what it was all about:
A staggering 140,000 children go missing in the UK every year.
On International Missing Children’s Day (Sunday 25 May), we harnessed the power of Twitter to help find missing children via The Big Tweet for Missing Children.
The public retweeted our appeals for missing children, which were issued every 30 minutes for 24 hours.
Our Patron Stephen Fry supported the event once again - here's what he said before the event:
"Do you know what you are going to be doing on Sunday 25 May? I do. I am going to be throwing my weight behind the charity Missing People’s ‘Big Tweet for Missing Children’ for the fourth year running.
"It is a very simple concept and there is simply no excuse not to get involved. Every half hour for 24 hours throughout International Missing Children’s Day, the charity will be posting Twitter appeals with the aim of finding missing children.
"By retweeting these appeals, we can all help extend the platform that might bring those children home. Circulating the details of these children through the social media site is such a simple, yet incredibly effective way to give the appeals as much coverage as possible.
"I was so impressed by how the world of Twitter responded last year – an incredible 58,000 retweets in one day. The result? Two missing children were found. Invaluable."
