A man from Pawleys Island said he believes he has found the Upstate author of a message in a bottle.
On Monday, Jay Hartman said he found the bottle on the ocean side of Baruch North Island Reserve. According to the note inside, it was written in 2003 by "J.T.S," a student from Oakland Elementary School in Greenwood.
The note says the student threw the bottle in the water on a field trip to the aquarium.
Hartman estimated "J.T.S" would now be about 25 years old.
He said he has been contacted by a woman who said she knows the identity of the writer named Jerry, although Hartman has not yet been able to speak to him directly.
