A six-year-old’s message in a bottle was made its way from London to Denmark.
Carsten Hornecker found the crumpled note from Freddy Marr in a bottle that had been washed up on a beach in Udsholt Strand, Denmark.
The man took to Facebook to share what he’d found and tried to locate the young boy.
Hornecker’s post was shared nearly 4,000 times and a picture was also uploaded on the Facebook page ‘Lostbox’ - a ‘lost and found’ service.
Social media users in London who had spotted the status began tweeting out using the hashtag #messageinabottle on Thursday 4 July 2016.
Thanks to the power of social media, Freddy and his family were located.
“Thank you to our Lostbox community. A friend of Freddy’s family spotted our post,” an update read.
We’d love to know Freddy’s response when he found out how far his note had travelled.
