The post said students in Chris Albrecht's fourth grade class at Fred Hill Intermediate School had created bottled messages in 2011 and they were launched into the Atlantic Ocean. The bottle found in the Bahamas contained a message from a student named Jared.

The post said Jared, now a junior at Penn State, was "shocked" to learn his bottle had been found.
