Nolan Rogers was on a holiday with his family, exploring the beach of a small island when he found a message in a bottle.

The screw-top Dr Pepper bottle that Nolan discovered had a letter inside it and Nolan mistook it for a message from the pirates.

He then gave the letter to his parents who read it first.

Garrick, Nolan's mother and her husband could only read a few words out of the yellowish letter that said, "I wish I could see you... I love you so much... I love you, Diane'. Although they couldn't find whom the letter was addressed to, they saw that it read 'M'. The signature of the letter however, was immediately recognized by Garrick as that of her friend Diane Bryant.

On sending a picture of the letter to Diane (left), she replied that she exactly knew where the letter came from.

Turns out that in 1970, a 13-year-old Bryant had a boyfriend back then named Mike Rogers. Now Mike, it turns out, is the grandfather of the boy who found the letter in the first place!

They had been a couple in their teenage years.

On one fine occasion when Bryant was on a trip and Rogers wasn't allowed to come for some reasons, she wrote a note and put it in a bottle and threw it in the lake, hoping that Rogers would find it later that summer.

Appears that it took 45 summers for the letter to reach Rogers.

Diane (left) who had written the letter to Rogers (right) says, 'With my whole heart, I just knew one day he would find it. I've thought about it through the years, thinking, "I wonder if anyone ever found that bottle?"

Here is a video of the whole incident!
