OSLO, Norway - More than 26 years after her father died at sea, a Norwegian woman was shocked to receive a message from him in a bottle.
The crinkled note, with her father's handwriting in red marker pen, aroused "powerful feelings" in her, Guri Abelsen said Wednesday.
Abelsen said her father, Ola Abelsen, had told her he wrote a message in a bottle which he had thrown into the sea from his fishing boat, Utvik
Senior, in February 1977.
Later that month, the boat sank with Abelsen and eight other men on board, after disappearing off the Norwegian coast.
