SOMERTON - The Arizona town of Somerton is missing a 25-year-old bottle of brandy.

When officials in Somerton opened a time capsule Saturday, they discovered mementos from 1985 - but didn't find a bottle of Mexican brandy that was supposed to be in the capsule.

Somerton street and solid waste supervisor Pancho Soto was part of the crew that buried the time capsule.

He says he was surprised when it was opened and there was no bottle of brandy. Soto says it was there when the crew buried the capsule in concrete along Main Street.

The time capsule did contain letters from Somerton residents, photographs, a VHS tape and a 1981 Time magazine with a picture of President Ronald Reagan on the cover.
