Hitting the bottle again:
Norfolk residents Johnathon and Brandon Wolfe were fishing on the Raquette River when Johnathon spied a soccer ball on the riverbank. He got out to pick it up and then noticed an intact, small Pepsi bottle and a letter inside. Unable to remove the cap, he broke the glass bottle to retrieve Woodward’s note.
“Hi! My name is Robynn. Please write me.”
After giving her address in nearby Norwood, she declared, “I’m boared!” She also dated the letter (sometime in 1983–ed.) and gave her age and birth date.
“I was shocked, seeing how old it was, by it still being around when we found it,” Johnathon Wolfe said. “It didn’t get smashed or anything. I couldn’t believe it.”
By that night, helped perhaps by the unusual spelling of Woodward’s first name, the brothers had located her via Facebook and sent her a message.
