Brothers separated for nearly 60 years reunited in Fresno

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Two brothers separated since their childhoods were finally reunited this week in Fresno.

Steven Farley and Michael Riederer say they were born to alcoholic parents and placed in an orphanage in Missouri before they were 5 years old. The pair told us they were separated once they were adopted by different families.

Farley says he always wanted to learn more about his biological sibling, so he hired a private investigator who found Riederer.

The two men have been making up for lost time this week by learning about each other.
