A 9-year-old girl discovered a message in a bottle in Hawaii launched from Japan 37 years earlier.

According to news agency United Press International, she visited a Hawaii park with her family.

Abbie Graham found a mud-caked glass bottle on the beach and then she told her parents.

“I thought it was trash, and she thought it was treasure,” her father, John Graham, said.

They then took the bottle with them and eventually discovered a message in a bottle.

The Chiba Prefectural Choshi High School Natural Science Club in Japan wrote the note inside.

“This bottle was thrown into the sea off the coast of Choshi, Japan, in July 1984,” it read.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old boy in Portugal found a message in a bottle launched from Rhode Island in 2018.

According to various news reports online, he discovered it while spearfishing in the Azores archipelago.

Christian Santos said he randomly came across a sports drink bottle containing an index card.

“It is Thanksgiving. I am 13 and visiting family in Rhode Island. I am from Vermont,” the message reads.

The message also included an email address and a request for the finder to send a message once he found the bottle.
