Don’t worry, we’ve found miss­ing Karl

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

IT was the mys­tery dis­ap­pear­ance that had TV au­di­ences scratch­ing their heads.

But Karl Ste­fanovic’s abrupt de­par­ture from his host­ing du­ties on To­day last week was, in fact, a well-or­ches­trated plot to avoid pa­parazzi and em­bark on yet an­other ro­man­tic trop­i­cal get­away with girl­friend Jas­mine Yarbrough.

The Sun­day Tele­graph can re­veal Ste­fanovic and his shoe-de­signer squeeze are soak­ing up the sun in the Poly­ne­sian play- ground Bora Bora aboard the mega-yacht of Ste­fanovic’s best pal James Packer.

The trio are among a small group en­joy­ing a lav­ish stay aboard Packer’s 87m con­verted ice­breaker Arc­tic P for the next few days.

It’s un­der­stood Ste­fanovic, who took time off work to spend two weeks in Hawaii with Yarbrough in May, left noth­ing to chance this time around, se­cretly bolt­ing from Nine’s stu­dios shortly be­fore 8am on Thurs­day.

With the pa­parazzi caught snooz­ing, he was whisked to Syd­ney In­ter­na­tional Air­port, where it’s be­lieved he jumped on a 9.40am flight to Auck­land be­fore catch­ing two fur­ther con­nect­ing flights to Bora Bora.

There he was re­u­nited with Yarbrough, who had ar­rived in the trop­i­cal par­adise sev­eral days ear­lier, hint­ing at her lo­ca­tion on Face­book with some pool­side snaps cap­tioned: “Nope … not com­ing home.”

The pair are due back in Syd­ney on Wed­nes­day, with Ste­fanovic ex­pected to re­turn to host­ing du­ties on Thurs­day.

Yarbrough and Ste­fanovic love trav­el­ling and (right) Yar­bor­ough’s Face­book post.
