Man finds message in bottle from 1994 in western Michigan

Posted: Updated:
 IONIA, Mich. (AP) - It isn't quite a message in a bottle, but an Ohio man says he found a 21-year-old message secreted in a camera film case that had traveled some 40 miles down the Grand River in western Michigan.

Terry Smith tells WILX-TV that he found the case with the messages inside on Monday while hunting for mushrooms in Ionia, Michigan. According to Smith, the case contained three pieces of paper written by two 12-year-old girls in Lansing in 1994.

Two of the documents show drawings of the girls, while the third is a letter to the finder of the film case.

Smith says when he found the papers they were water-stained and damp, but are nonetheless in good condition.
