LEAKE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - The authors of a message in a bottle have been located after the bottle was found floating in the Pearl River earlier this week.

The bottle was found north of the Leake County Water Park.

The message inside dated Feb. 10, 1989, written by Tony and Chris Taylor of Carthage, Miss.

On Thursday, Pearl River Kayaks stated the Taylor family has been located. The family now lives in Woodbury and Smithville, Tennessee, reports WLBT-TV in Jackson.

The note read:

"Our names are Tony and Chris Taylor. I am 4 years old and Chris is 2 years old. We hope somebody finds this bottle. We love you and God loves you!"

The TV station reports the boys' mother actually wrote the note with her two children before they tossed it into the river.
