Sometime in 1985, a Canadian man named Jonathan wrote a note to a woman named Mary and dropped it into the ocean. Twenty-eight years later the bottle was found almost 5,000 miles away on the banks of the Neretva River. The message inside was posted on social media and in newspapers, It reads, “Mary, you really are a great person. I hope we can keep in correspondence. I said I would write. Your friend always, Jonathon, Nova Scotia, 1985. The woman who found the message posted a picture of it hoping to reunite the couple, or at least learn more about what has happened to them. So far, there has been no response.— Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
