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!
Thanks to everyone who shared the story of Aimee Gelinas finding Sarah’s bottle, it ended up getting noticed by the lovely and wonderful Search Squad! The Search Squad is a Facebook group who help others find people they are looking for (if you are ever in need of their top-notch people-finding skills, click here to get to their Facebook page where you can submit a request for help). As you can imagine, this facilitates some inspiring and beautiful reunions–like this one.
