On opening the bottle, and reading the note, I was delighted to find that there was a phone number to call - to inform Madison, age 8, that the note had been found.
However, it was not to be, as the mobile number simply isn't correct and does not appear to work. (and I've just retried it to make sure).
So, as usual, I did embark on a twitter mission to try to trace Madison, but to this day, there has been no success.
So.... I've decided to give a prize to the person who finds her. A bit like Cinderalla and the glass slipper, except it's Madison (wasn't that the name of the mermaid in the film "Splash"?) and the prize is a Thames bottle fish - see below - made from glass collected on the very foreshore where Madison's note was found.
So, if you're up for a New Year Challenge! Please help to find Madison and let her know her message in a bottle was found. There can't be that many Madisons in London can there?
