27 years later, a children’s message was found in the bottle. In 1995, a group of best friends wrote messages on bottles and threw them into a reservoir near Houston, Texas. Twenty-seven years later, Terry Pettyjohn and volunteers found the bottle while cleaning up the beach. Pettyjohn turned to Facebook to find the people in the post. Finally
he managed to contact Brian Standefer. It turns out that the bottle has traveled only two miles from where it was produced.
