Strange but true: Message in a bottle returned to owner's family after 76 years

A message in a bottle that was cast out to sea 76 years ago has been found in New Zealand and returned to the family of the person who originally wrote it:

[...] The bottle was discovered by Geoff Flood last November, with a note inside, which said: "At sea. Would the finder of this bottle kindly forward this note, where found, date, to undermentioned address."

The paper was signed March 17 and it is believed it was released in 1936 by Herbert Ernest Hillbrick, who put his address and name on the note.

As they say, you can't make this stuff up.
