A message in a bottle tossed into spartanburg’s tyger river was recently discovered some 160 miles away, near the coast of south carolina, 42 years later.
erik richardson, a clemson university student, found the bottle and it took him weeks to open it without destroying it. a mostly legible letter dated april 19, 1976 and signed by mark, 12 at that time, was inside.
erik posted photos of the bottle on facebook and a message to find mark, now 50. the message was shared nearly 3,000 times.
“i just got off the phone with mark and he was overjoyed to hear that his bottle has survived so many years.” erik wrote in his facebook update. “maybe i’ll take his advice and let a letter of my own go downstream sometime!”
