LONDON - FEBRUARY 17: A letter written by Dr. David Livingstone on May 25, 1859 is displayed as it is unveiled to the public for the first time February 17, 2004 at Christie's in London. The letter, which will be offered as part of the sale of travel and natural history books and 20th century literature belonging to Quentin Keynes, the great grandson of Charles Darwin, was left by Livingstone in a bottle at the mouth of the Zambesi River in Africa, requesting urgent provisions from any passing ships that found it. The collection will be sold in three auctions over two days, on April 7-8, 2004 at Christie's in London. (Photo by Graeme Robertson/Getty Images)

A message in a bottle from 1987 just turned up in the Florida keys.


A man named Christopher Nolan says he found the bottle in his mother’s canal, and picked it up thinking it was just a piece of litter.


Instead, the bottle contained a handwritten note from someone named Zack Williams, who claims to have dropped the bottle in the ocean at Myrtle Beach on May 16, 1987.


Now Nolan is trying to track down Williams – who writes in the letter “Dear person who finds this I want you to try to return it to me”.
