Message in bottle found during Michigan oil cleanup

A worker cleaning up the remnants of a major oil spill in southwestern Michigan found an old liquor bottle with a message inside. The writing was hard to read but there was a telephone number, which belonged to a 93-year-old woman in the Battle Creek area.

The Battle Creek Enquirer says the message was written in 1997 by the woman' s son, Harold Miller, who died six years later from alcohol-related health problems.

Miller' s family believes he dropped the bottle in the Kalamazoo River and it floated to Morrow Lake in Galesburg. The note says, "I' ll be gone, but ..."

Miller' s family says his drinking problem was related to losing a welding job in 1987 after 22 years. Gertrude Miller says her son always brought her flowers.
