The mysterious glass bottle, with a note stuffed inside dating back to February 10, 1989, was found floating in the river by a woman from Rankin County. Angi Webb regularly kayaks the river but says she has never found something like this before.

Webb says that the family who wrote the message contacted her Thursday after the story aired. She said they were in tears when they heard about the finding.

The family now lives in Woodbury and Smithville, Tennessee. The mother of the authors of the note, Tony and Chris Taylor, actually wrote the note with her two children before they tossed it into the river.

Our names are Tony and Chris Taylor. I am 4 years old and Chris is 2 years old. We hope somebody finds this bottle. We love you and God loves you!

Angi Webb owns Pearl River Kayaks in Brandon and told the family she would love to have them come down for a family reunion to celebrate the finding this summer.
