1993 Grand Lake Message in a Bottle Sender from Woodbridge, VA Found – Now Lives in Missouri
Wooohooo!!!!! Sarah Hendrickson (Lindgren, today) has been found after her message in a bottle floated around for 23 years and ended up in Grand Lake, Oklahoma! She lived in Woodbridge, VA when the bottle was sent back in 1993, and it was thought she might still be in the area. Ultimately, the mystery was solved through Facebook, but not the way you might be thinking. I’ll tell you about it–but first, meet Sarah and Shane!

1993 Message in a Bottle Found in Oklahoma Lake from Sarah Hendrickson
Hi all! Just a quick post today in hopes of reaching Sarah Hendrickson of Woodbridge, Virginia. According to Tulsa’s 2 News that back in 1993, she sent a message in a bottle in a lake in Oklahoma. This week, it was found by Aimee Gelinas and her husband Josh while they were gathering driftwood for their landscaping business.
Aimee is super excited about the find, and told 2 News in Tulsa “I hope that she reaches out to me–I think I would even travel to give it to her wherever she might be…I’m so excited to hand it back to her!”
Here’s hoping we can find Sarah and learn why she sent her message in a bottle!
