Miami Herald photographer Tim Chapman is scheduled to meet the young man on Thursday. His colleague, Luisa Yanez, wrote on Sunday that efforts to find the baby failed, and that “we may never know how his life turned out.” On Monday, though, a relative of the young man — now in his early 30s — called the Herald and passed on contact information, reports Bill Cooke.
