A Polish woman who found a message in a bottle has set out on a romantic mission to find the lovelorn man who wrote it.
Alexandra Janica, 25, found the bottle floating in the sea as she walked on the beach during a holiday in Brzezno, Poland.
Inside a note, signed simply 'Pawel', says: "I wonder if the finder of this letter is as lonely as me?
"I have realised just how love can be and how despicable it is to lose. I had a love and sacrificed everything. But it has gone.
"I look upon this slow evening and wonder about the meaning of life."
Now Miss Janica, from Gdansk, has asked Polish media to help find the man who she believes could be her soulmate.
"I would love to meet this man and contemplate life and love. I can't think of anything else," she said.
