The engagement of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie isn’t the only “cover worthy” story to be found in this week’s edition of People magazine. Steve Carter, a 35-year-old Philadelphia resident, makes the magazine’s cover with his amazing story of finding out that for the past 34 years he was “missing”.
While Carter (who is a life-long friend of MIX 105.1’s Bobby Smith) always knew that he was adopted, in January of 2011 he discovered that he was a missing child by the name of Marx Panama who was kidnapped by his own mother, put into an orphanage, and then adopted three years later by the family who would raise him.
Several details about his past which he found somewhat suspicious prompted him to check the website missingkids.com, where he found a spitting image of himself via a composite drawing of what Marx Panama would look like at age 28. That prompted even more research, finally revealing the incredible story of his past. His identity was officially confirmed with a DNA test last November.
It’s an amazing story that Carter humorously shared with The Morning MIX. Take a listen.
