LONDON, May 2 (UPI) -- A British festival organizer said a Nepalese men's choir -- sought by immigration officials after disappearing at an airport -- said they had gotten lost.

David Peters, organizer of the male choral festival in Cornwall, said the 10 men disappeared at London's Heathrow airport and turned up three days later at a house about 10 miles from the airport, The Sun reported Monday.

Peters said immigration officials had been searching for the men when they called him to be picked up from the home. He said the men claimed they had gotten lost while exploring.

"I've no idea how they managed it. They rang me on the number they had the whole time," Peters said. "We sent another coach to pick them up by which time they'd disappeared again.

"We contacted them and said this is the last chance and they boarded. They performed and did a good job," he said.
