In 2017 two brothers from Scotland released a toy pirate ship which was lost at sea. They tried again with Adventure II — attaching a GPS so they could track its movements and share on social media.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. In 2017, two brothers from Scotland released a toy pirate ship, aptly named Adventure, out to sea. It sailed to Scandinavia and then Barbados before being lost. So they tried again with Adventure Two. This time, they attached a GPS so they could track its movements and share on social media. And this time, it was found all the way in Florida by a father and daughter. Maybe Jack Sparrow can locate Adventure One. It's MORNING EDITION.
