Man discovers 36-year-old message in a bottle and the original writer is delighted

Related imageRyan Burchett found a message in a bottle last weekend on Little St. Simons in Georgia. The buoyant letter was written 36 years ago and thanks to social media he was able to connect with the original sender. Douglas Stephens sent the bottle afloat off the Atlantic coast of Florida back on June 10, 1981. Burchett found the bottle while fishing with friends in southern Georgia, 40 miles from Fernandina Beach where Stephens set the bottle adrift.
