The crafts in a bottle journey took nearly three years, tossed by a 13-year-old American on a Rhode Island beach in the Atlantic Ocean in November 2018. In June 2021, another teenager in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores received an unusual message.
Lisbon TV channel reported on Monday that the founder of the bottle turned out to be a 17-year-old Christian from Roses, on the Azorean island of São Jorge.
The speech traveled 4.8 thousand. How many
Inside the bottle, a teenage Portuguese man found a message sent by Shawn Smith, in which the sender left an email communication and described the circumstances of the bottle being dumped in the Atlantic.
– Today is Thanksgiving. I am 13 years old and I am in Rhode Island to visit my family. I myself am from Vermont – wrote Sean, who not only expected the bottle to beat more than 4.8 thousand. km , but he also abandoned the mailbox to which comments from a potential message finder were supposed to reach.
The sender of the message has been found
After several unsuccessful emails to the address provided by Sean, the family of the Portuguese researcher published a message on one of the social networks with a picture of the bottle and a message discovered inside.
Finally, after more than two weeks of searching among Internet users in Vermont, the sender of the bottle was found. The American teenager explained that the letter found on the Portuguese island was one of several he threw into the ocean nearly three years ago on Thanksgiving.
