'WE ARE LOST," SAYS NOTE IN BOTTLE
Cast up by the lake yesterday came a message in a bottle "we are all lost" Other writing was indecipherable.
The identification bureau of the police dept. has taken possession of the missive which wasd written on tissue paper and corked in a bottle.
The only recent disaster to which the bottle might be traced, in thr opinion of police, is the sinking of a power cruiser last March, when Michael NYITRAI and Andrew KAYUH, both of Toledo were drowned.
With the aid of a magnifying glass, police later deciphered other parts of the message. It said
"We are all lost thru the ice. Just left Point Pelee
Island. The ice is xxxxx they xxxxxx"
The note was signed "Eva".
