Her father Chris was quick to respond, writing: ‘Sorry, Rachel, hold on…’
Other hashtags included ‘#China’, ‘#LifeInChina’, #Shenzhen’ and ‘#ShenzhenChina’.
Paul returned to Brundall, Norwich, where he lives with his wife Samantha Shirley Overall and their three children.
Rachel works in the southern Chinese city as a brand manager.
The couple enjoyed a whirlwind romance during the country’s strict, prolonged Covid lockdowns.
In April, Paul returned to Norfolk in early April to visit family, Rachel says she was told — and “would be back by now.”

She wrote in the supplication: ‘I have an unusual question. My friend, Paul Magee, and I live in Shenzhen, China.
“He went home (Norwich) in early April and would be back in China by now.
“However, I haven’t heard from him lately and I’m afraid something may have happened. If anyone knows anything, please contact me.’
A friend of Paul’s cheekily remarked: ‘He has a lady and children’.
While some vicious users laughed at Rachel’s post, some pointed to the harshness of the situation.

A friend of Paul’s partner, Samantha, who lives in Norwich, wrote: ‘It’s not really funny.
Rachel’s desperate plea for Paul’s whereabouts proved successful – but not in the way she’d wanted
‘He has a wife and children and I really feel for her now!
“And another friend in China, it seems.”
Another friend added, “Not funny to her in the least.”
Rachel was born in South Carolina and completed a master’s degree in Bournemouth in 2018.
The part-time vlogger, who uploads “Hilarious Dating Fails” on her YouTube channel, deleted the post, seemingly embarrassed.
A friend of Paul’s said yesterday: ‘Paul and his partner haven’t seen each other for two years.
“He came back recently and they got back together. They are divorced and have children. They’ve been thinking, “Let’s try again”.’
It was also claimed that Rachel and Samantha’s relationships do not overlap.
