So far three people have been found after their face was seen on the backpack of a food delivery rider.

Families like that of Matthew Bone are hoping this campaign will give them a chance of seeing their son again.

He's been missing since March of this year, so that's nine months now and since that day, 9th of March, we have had no updates at all as to where he might be or what might have happened. So, as a mother, that's really really painful.

It's something the Deliveroo riders are getting on board with.

I think it's an excellent idea, we're already in the centre, we spend lots of time in the centre, time in the restaurants waiting for our orders occasionally so it's something that can be very easily read. There's not a lot of text on the side so it's very simple, the photo's very clear and I'm so delighted that something so simple has been so effective.

– Caroline, Bristol Deliveroo rider
