NEW HARMONY, Ind. (WEVV/WLFI) —A message in a bottle from a West Lafayette girl made its way 250 miles down the Wabash River to New Harmony, Indiana. Now, the person who found it needs your help to find Abbey Bradford.  

WLFI was contacted by our CBS affiliate in Evansville Thursday. According to aFacebook post, the message was sent in an old glass Pepsi bottle and was picked up out of the Wabash in New Harmony. That's at the southwestern most tip of the state. 

The note reads: "Who ever gets this! My name is Abbey Bradford. I am a girl. I live in West Lafayette, IN. You can call me at ----. Love, Abbey

The woman who found the note said the phone number on the note didn't work. News 18 tried the number and it said it was disconnectd.

If you know Abbey, we would love to hear from you. Please email newsroom@wlfi.com.
