A South African businessman is refusing to leave Croatia until he finds a girl who he spotted across a crowded bar.
Keith Van Der Spuy has never even spoken to the girl but says she was the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. He has cancelled his flight home and taken out adverts in local newspapers in the port town of Split.
Mr Van Der Spuy says he lost sight of the pretty young woman shortly after she smiled at him across the bar. But he's convinced she was a local because he heard her calling to a female friend shortly before he lost sight of her.
Van Der Spuy, who is also the head of the South African water-polo association, said he could not get her out of his mind and when he got to the airport realized he could not board the plane. He has already extended his holiday for four months, and says he is prepared to stay in Split for as long as it takes.
He told Croatian daily Slobodna Dalmacija: "I will not leave this place for years if I have to. When I saw her and she looked at me I knew she was the one. There was pure chemistry between us.
"I can't get her out of my head. I just want to meet her and see her long dark hair and beautiful smile again. She is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.
"If she is married or is not interested I can accept it - but I have to know - I have to see her one more time, and I have even bought a diamond ring for her."
