IONIA, Mich. (AP) — An Ohio man says he found a 21-year-old message in a bottle of sorts after it had traveled down the Grand River in western Michigan.

Terry Smith tells WILX-TV that he found a film case with the message inside while hunting for mushrooms Monday in Ionia. According to Smith, inside the case were three pieces of paper written by two 12-year-old Lansing girls in 1994.

Two of the papers have drawings of the girls, while the third is a letter to the finder of the film case.

Smith says the papers are water-stained and were damp, but are in good condition.
