Lundburg told the homeless man that his financial situation was about to change.
Melitzer's brother died of cancer last year and left him a "significant" amount of money.
Lundberg was hired to track down Melitzer after the family lost contact with him in September.
The manager of Salt Lake's City Rescue Mission confirmed that Melitzer often stayed at the mission when not trekking to Ogden. A tip from a KSL listener — the quest for Melitzer made local news — led Lundberg to find the man.
"I think he was happy to be finally able to connect with his family in New York," Lundberg said.
