  A Message in a bottle sent out to sea by a New Hampshire man more
than five decades ago was found 1,500 miles away and has been returned
to his daughter。 The long lost message was discovered by Clint
Buffington of Utah while he was vacationing。 Buffington says he found a
soda bottle half buried in the sand that looked like it had been there
since the beginning of time。 The note inside the bottles said, “return
to 419 Ocean Street and receive a reward of $150 from Richard and Tina
Pierce, owners of the Beach comber motel。” The motel was owned by the
parents of Paula Pierce in 1960。 Her father had written the note as a
joke and had thrown it into the Atlantic Ocean。 Buffington flew to New
Hampshire to deliver the message to Paula Pierce。 She held up to her
father‘s promise giving Buffington that reward, but the biggest reward
is the message in a bottle finding its way back home。
