It took 45 years, but a message-in-a-bottle an 11-year-old girl threw off a lighthouse into Lake Michigan was finally discovered. UPI reports that Tina Green-Allera had stuffed the letter inside of an empty vodka bottle while visiting her grandparents in Michigan on August 29, 1974. It was discovered in 2015 in the mud at a construction site a few miles away from the lighthouse. The man who found it sent her a message on Facebook that she only recently discovered. He's going to mail her the message and the pair have plans to meet up in Traverse City and record a podcast about the whole experience.
