Maine teen's message in a bottle found by fisherman in Spain

June 03, 2016 - 3:43 AM

CUMBERLAND, Maine - A Maine teen got some unexpected news when she received a handwritten letter from a fisherman saying that her message in a bottle had been found in Spain.

WCSH-TV reports (http://on.wcsh6.com/25EfyxJ ) Terra Gallo and her sister put messages into bottles and tossed them into the ocean while visiting their aunt on Monhegan Island three years ago.

The girls had forgotten about the bottles until they were surprised by the fisherman's correspondence last week.

Galo, now 14, studied maps of ocean currents and discovered her message travelled roughly 3,000 miles.

Gallo's message asked that whoever found her bottle put their own message inside with hers and send it back out to sea. The fisherman said he complied with her wishes in his letter.
