Found drifting in the water on the beach in the Bel Royal area on the English Channel is a bottle. Inside a bottle was a message dated Sept. 5, 1938, which meant it floated for almost 82 years. A man named Nigel Hill found the aforementioned bottle.
The letter, which was signed John Stapleford, included an address in Hertfordshire, England, and asked that the person who finds the bottle get into contact with its author.
Hill said he managed to get into contact with the current resident of the listed address, but they were not related to the former resident and didn't know how to contact his family.
While Stapleford might no longer be in this world, Hill still would like to find Stapleford’s family to present the message to them.
Have you ever picked a bottle with a message inside from the ocean before?
