A boy who spent his Saturday cleaning a beach in Bermuda found a four-year-old message in a bottle that had traveled 1,000 miles.
UPI reports Joseph Vallis was part of a cleanup project with his class from Warwick Academy when he came across the bottle. Vallis brought it to his father who removed the cork and helped determine where the letter had come from. The elder Vallis said they used a black light to help read the writing.
The Vallis' discovered the bottle had come from a French sailing yacht in 2014. The authors included an email address, but an email sent to them has not yet been returned.
