PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) — A message in a bottle that is more than 36 years old was discovered in Massachusetts.

Joshua Mendes says he found a weathered glass bottle with the bleached letter while beachcombing in Provincetown.

He says the letter was signed by an 11-year-old girl named Jenny Brown and dated May 14, 1983.

The letter gives the address of a post office box in Jonesport, Maine, and says “Please write me.”

Mendes says his attempts to contact Brown have not been successful.
