Emotional message in a bottle washes ashore

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A man shared an emotional letter he found in a bottle that washed ashore on a Florida beach.

Steve Mershon said the letter looks like a child wrote it. It is directed to his best friend who died.

"Dear Daniel, I'm relly [sic] sorry that you pass away," the letter reads.

It goes on to say that if Daniel were alive they would be playing football, soccer and basketball.

"I am in the fifth grade and you were my best friend [sic] and our favorite song was Austin Moon and I hope you fun with Jesus," the letter states.

It is signed with the name Jonothon Torres.

Mershon lives along the Florida coast in Indialantic and is hoping to find the writer.
