Autor poruke u boci pronađen je 50 godina nakon što ju je bacio u Indijski ocean, objavio je u nedjelju BBC.

Australac britanskog porijekla Paul Gilmore, tada 13-godišnjak, bacio je poruku u boci u ocean dok je jedrio sa svojom obitelji od Ujedinjenog Kraljevstva do Melbournea.

U utorak je njegovu poruku u južnoj Australiji pronašao 13-godišnji Jyah Elliott dok je pecao s ocem.

Gilmore je rekao za BBC da se "uvijek nadao da će mu se pismo vratiti".

U poruci napisanoj 17. studenog 1969., Paul Gilmore je naveo da putuje prema Australiji na brodu Fairstar i da se nalazi 1,000 milja od grada Fremantle te pozvao nalaznika poruke da mu odgovori na istu.

"Jasno se sjećam kako sam poslao ta pisma. Bila su mi jako važna i dio avanture na drugoj strani svijeta ", rekao je Gilmore, sada vrtlar i biznismen.

"Volim čitati avanturističke priče, poput romana Robinson Crusoe i sličnih. Mislim da sam se nadao da ću pronaći prekrasnu djevojku na egzotičnom otoku", dodao je Gilmore.

Dječak koji je pronašao pisma odlučio je pisati Gilmoreu i nada se njegovu odgovoru.
