A Houston boy who disappeared eight years ago and was found earlier this month could soon be reunited with his parents, or he might remain in foster care.

A Texas judge is expected to make a decision Wednesday on the fate of 8-year-old Miguel Morin after a court hearing in Houston.

Child welfare officials and others are expected to testify.

The boy has been in foster care since being found after police arrested a family friend. Police say the friend took Miguel back in 2004 when he was 8 months old and had him living with her in the East Texas town of San Augustine.

A Houston man and woman say they're the boy's parents and are seeking to regain custody. They haven't met with Miguel since he was found.
