(KSL News) -- Many Utahns have played a part in reuniting Hurricane victims with their families.

One 11- year- old boy is headed to Arizona to be reunited with him mom, thanks to several Utahns.

A local radio station interviewed Nino Green yesterday. He hadn't seen his mother since the Friday before the hurricane hit. Nino Green didn't know if his mom -- or his five siblings -- were dead or alive.

One listener ran across 41- year- old Nina Green's name in the Arizona Republic paper and contacted the radio station.

Officials at Camp Williams were able to contact her at an evacuee camp in Arizona, and Nino got to talk to his mom.

Nino Green, Evacuee: "She was very happy. She was, hey, Nino, hey!"

Nino found out that all his brothers and sisters are alive at various evacuee camps across the US.

Other listeners put up the money for Nino to fly to Arizona to be reunited with his mom.
