Ronan Keating's missing X Factor Australia contestant has been found, and revealed he'd spent a night sleeping in a cave on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

Altiyan Childs, the last remaining contestant in the over 25s category, went AWOL on Monday night after surviving the public vote to stay in the show.

Altiyan told Australia's Daily Telegraph the cave held special memories for him and his ex-fiancee, who he split from eight years ago, so he went there in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

He said: "I wasn't running away from anything - I needed a place that meant something to me. Somewhere I could get reacquainted with intimacy."
