Explanation: There is also an American expression saying a person 'has gone south', it means he has inexplicably disappeared.
Tina, we really need context to be able to help you properly. And please reward the person answering your question the KudoZ, otherwise you will be prompted to do so at a later stage. As the word 'south' is almost too simple, I suspect you were joking and just put any word to see if anything would happen. If this is the case I wish you'd 'disappear south' as we are caring professionals, trying to help each other out with more intricate questions.
