A 10-year-old upstate New York boy's message in a bottle dropped in the Atlantic as part of a school project has been retrieved across the ocean in the Azores.

Curtis Kipple of Adams Basin, west of Rochester, wrote a letter in March along with his fellow fourth graders at the Fred W. Hill School in Brockport. The bottles were dropped into the Gulf Stream, 30 miles off shore, by a fisherman from North Carolina's Outer Banks.

The school received a return email this week from a tiny fishing village on the Azores archipelago off Portugal, about 2,600 miles from Brockport.

The email said the bottle was found by a father and son out fishing.
