SEARSPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Merle and Marcia Thompson of Searsport found something unusual at the beach a couple of weeks ago - a message in a bottle.

The Thompsons who own a bottle redemption center don't usually give people their bottles back, but this bottle is different.  The note inside the Smart Water water bottle is from a girl named Gabriela and was sent from Bar Harbor in 2008. She left an email and Skype address, but the end of the email address isn't very legible, and the Thompsons don't have access to Skype, so they asked us to see if we could help them find Gabriela.

"It's just kind of cool.  I've never found anything like this before," Marcia said. "And even if we didn't...we just wanted to let her know that her letter has been found. Yup, found your letter, Gab, and Merle and Marcia want to hear from you."

So Gabriela, if you're watching, you can call our Assignment Desk at 991-5355 and we will put you in touch with Merle and Marcia Thompson. They'd love to hear from you.
