Ryder Goggin celebrated his birthday on New Year’s Eve by walking along the Mendocino, CA coastline. The five year old was thrilled to find a message in a bottle.
At first, Ryder thought it might be a treasure map. And it is, in its own way. The letter inside left little clues but it left Ryder and his mom curious enough to try to find the author. The 28 year old letter is only a few short sentences.
‘Hi my name is Chris. I am 10 years old and in the 5th grade. I live in Sacramento. Call me when you find this to let me know where it washed ashore. September 5th, 1988.”
The number Chris gave is disconnected. And a local TV reporter is helping the youngster search for Chris. The search is nationwide as even the Library of Congress lent a hand. Watch the story and see if maybe you can help make a connection!
