In 1985, a man named Jonathon dropped a message in a bottle to a woman named Mary. Twenty-eight years later, the message in a bottle was discovered after having made a voyage of almost 5,000 miles from Canada to Croatia.

“Mary, you really are a great person. I hope we can keep in correspondence. I said I would write,” reads the message, which was published in the Toronto Star. “Your friend always. Jonathon. Nova Scotia 1985.”

According to the AFP, the bottle traveled approximately 4,971 miles between the two points.

The bottle was discovered by Matea Rezik, who said she found it washed up on the banks of the Neretva river.

Rezik then posted a picture of the message, saying she wanted to help reunite Mary and Jonathon. Since then, people have been posting about the message across social media sites in an attempt to find out exactly who the two are, where they might live and even if they're still alive.
