A man who went missing at the Euros for nearly two days has to live with the embarrassment of his photo being shared "more times" than a Kim Kardashian adult video, his cousin has joked.
Nicola Perry posted an appeal for help locating missing Kevin in France after he disappeared on Friday night.
However the Belfast man turned up safe and well on Sunday afternoon, much to the relief of his concerned family.
Now, in a post on Facebook, Nicola has scolded him for his disappearing act and warned that he is grounded when he comes home.
She wrote: "Thank you so much to everybody who shared the appeal my cousin Kevin has been found safe and well!!
"A big relief for the family and his friends.
"Now he has to face the embarrassment of his picture being shared round Facebook more times than a Kim Kardashian porno.
"Just delighted my wee cousin has been found- love you all- time for a bloody drink lol xxxxx [sic].
"One more time- this is the culprit!! Enjoy the rest of the euros kiddo- you're grounded when you get home lol xxxxx"
Kevin Perry got separated from his friends in Bordeaux late on Friday night and had not been seen since.
His cousin Nicola had taken to Facebook to appeal for help locating the missing man.
She wrote: “Folks my cousin Kevin has been separated from his friends in Bordeaux from late on Friday night.
“His name is Kevin Perry.”
She issued an appeal to anyone who is in France to help with the search: “If you have friends at the Euros can you ask them to keep an eye out and let us know he is safe and well.”
She also said his phone is turned off.
A spokeswoman for the temporary Irish consulate in Bordeaux confirmed that they had been providing consular assistance to the family.
It was confirmed shortly after 4pm on Sunday that the young man was found 'safe and well'.
