Maine worker discovers new hire is lost brother

A furniture delivery man in Maine says so many customers told him his co-worker looked just like him that he did some research. And it turns out they're brothers - separated as babies 35 years ago when they were given up for adoption.

Randy Joubert says he and Gary Nisbet began working together in July for a bedding retailer in a tiny town named Waldoboro. Co-workers commented on how they both are light-haired, wear glasses and have stocky builds.

Three weeks ago Joubert asked about Nisbet's birth date and the names of his birth parents. He says he almost fell over when he heard the answers and knew he had found his long-lost brother. Nisbet says he was star-struck.

Their story garnered so much local attention it helped them find their half-sister.
