Message In Bottle Washes Up On Eastern Carolina Beach

Last week's nor'easter helped deliver a message in a bottle that was tossed into the ocean 24 years ago from New Jersey to North Carolina.

Ocean City held a contest in 1985 to reward the vacationer whose bottle traveled the farthest. The message was written by Heidi Kay Werstler of Trembler's Trailer Park in Pennsylvania.

Workers at The Sanderling Resort & Spa in Duck, on the Outer Banks, found the bottle while cleaning up after last week's storm.

The contest has long since expired. But Ocean City wants to track down Werstler to award her a prize of saltwater taffy.
