Message in bottle travels across the Atlantic Ocean

A Portuguese teenager has found a message in a bottle that travelled at least 2,400 miles from a Vermont teenager. Christian Santos, 17, was spearfishing in the Azores when he found a crumpled plastic bottle that was tossed into the sea near Rhode Island in 2018, The Boston Globe reported.

Santos' mother, Molly Santos, posted a photo of the note on Facebook asking for others to share the post in hopes of finding the writer to share how far the message travelled.

The note inside of a Powerade bottle was written in orange marker on a notecard that reads, “It is Thanksgiving. I am 13 and visiting family in Rhode Island. I am from Vermont.” 

The note included an email address to respond to.

Molly Santo said that she sent an email to the address, but never received a response.
