30-year-old message in bottle surfaces in Mississippi

CARTHAGE, Miss. (AP) — A 30-year-old message in a bottle has been found floating down a river in Mississippi.

WLOX-TV reported Wednesday that Angi Webb found the note in the Pearl River just north of the Low Head Dam. She says the note was dated Feb. 10, 1989. The note starts off saying “Our names are Tony and Chris Taylor. I am 4 years old and Chris is 2 years old.” It says it hopes someone finds the bottle, and that the authors and God love the reader.

The note is signed Tony and Chris Taylor of Carthage. Webb says she’s now trying to find the family. She says she’s posted on Facebook and reached out to people in the area but hasn’t heard anything yet.
