adequate use of the verb to be


In  what context can "WHO ARE THERE?" be used? If the subject of the sentence is not in the question,shouldn´t I use "WHO IS THERE?"?

Who is there?


This is a complete sentence which does indeed have a subject.  Who is the subject.  It is both a singular and a plural pronoun.


What about the people who are there?
