Message in a Bottle Thrown into the Ocean 37 Years Ago Reunited with Original Owner

Last year, two instructors picking up trash on the Indian River Lagoon coast in Florida discovered a Pepsi bottle with a piece of rolled-up brown paper inside.

Katie Carmax and her family were given the bottle, and they were able to get the message back to Troy Heller, who had tossed it into the Atlantic Ocean 37 years before. Troy had put on the message, along with his name, age, Louisville address, and phone number, “Call me or write to me.” Through a phone number lookup, the Carmax family located Troy, and he was reunited with the letter he had written 37 years prior.
