Mystery banner asking 'James my Irish smiler' to get in touch is attached to railings at Princes Parade, Hythe

By Victoria Chessum

A large banner has been tied to a set of railings at a beach prompting "James the Irish smiler" to get in touch.

The appeal for this man to reunite with "Gone Girl" was first spotted at Princes Parade in Hythe over the weekend.

The banner reads: "James my Irish smiler, gone girl is missing you."

The 40-year-old woman who is behind the appeal would not reveal her name to KentOnline, but said that James "knows who Gone Girl is".

She said: "He has a smile that would light up the whole world."

The pair met at The George pub near Folkestone Harbour in July and they had been on two dates since.

But Gone Girl's phone broke and she hasn't been able to get in touch with the 34-year-old since.

She said he had gone back to Ireland for five days but officially lives in Sandgate.

The banner has been tactfully placed - as this is the route he uses for running, she said.

The woman is even placing a picture of James in the BP Garage, Seabrook Road, a station she said he uses regularly in a bid to get his attention.

In a final plea, Gone Girl said: "I do miss him - there are not many people you can say where you actually click and you have banter with.

"Even if we can be forever friends I would be happy with that.

"There are probably 10 other men I could go on dates with but I am not interested.

"Call me."
