The Mission-Aransas Reserve, composed of scientists and education professionals who study the coast and waters of the Texas Coastal Bend, said in a Facebook post that researchers conducting a beach survey along the Texas Padre Island National Seashore found two messages in bottles last week.

The letter, dated June 13, 2022, said Whalen was vacationing in Jamaica with two friends when she launched the bottle. "I wish I has some good secrets or something to share, but I really don't," Whalen wrote. "I wonder where this letter will end up." The Mission-Aransas Reserve said details of the second message in a bottle will be shared on Facebook later in the week.
