NORTH TEXAS - A North Texas family credits ancestry.com for helping them find a man who was posing as their deceased son.

Jon Vincent, 44, was arrested in Pennsylvania for theft of Nathan Laskoski's identity after fleeing from a Texas halfway house. The real Nathan Laskoski died in 1972, two months after he was born in Dallas.

Nathan's aunt did a search on Ancestry.com and public records suggested her nephew was still alive. Police say Vincent is facing charges of social security fraud and aggravated identity theft.
