Local man searching for long lost ‘Chernobyl brother’ who used to come to US for summers

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- All he has is a photo – one photo.

“That's going to be Yuri in the middle, that's my brother, Jesse, and that's me,” says James Mattson, somewhat wistfully.

The photo is from about 12 or 15 years ago, when his church in Roxboro brought a few dozen kids who were affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster here for the summer so they could get at least a few months away from the radiation fallout.

His family hosted Yuri Borovikov for five consecutive summers.
