Tylah sign mystery

WHO is Tylah? What is she, that all the signs request her?

Well at least one sign requests her.

A large sign saying ‘Give Tylah Back’ has been a feature of the Coramba Road, just west of Red Hill for months.

Designed to attract the attention of motorists travelling west on the Orara Way, the large sign was so carefully placed that it defied wind, rain, weather and peeling tree bark for months.

It even had wooden pegs on the corners to prevent tearing.

Obviously Tylah was important and had people who cared about her, whether she was a dog, cat or relative.

But this week the sign disappeared.

Had Tylah been given back?

Had Tylah’s family given up hope?

We still don’t know.

The culprit who finally took down the sign was neighbour Jim Dunlop, who said he was sick of seeing it on the tree near his driveway, gradually succumbing to the elements.

Unfortunately he has no idea who Tylah is either.

Is there anyone out there who can solve the sign or will it remain one of life’s little mysteries?
