A 12-year-old boy in Bermuda says he's found a message in a bottle that's traveled more than one-thousand miles in four years. Joseph Vallis was participating in a beach cleanup project this weekend when he discovered the bottle in a pile of trash. The boy's father helped him open the bottle and decipher the writing on the note inside with a black light. The message said the bottle had been dropped from a French sailing yacht in April of 2014. The authors of the note included an email address for the finders to reach them at.
The Vallis family said they've sent an email and are waiting on a response.
