Cary Dolego of Queen Creek was interviewed by ABC News back in March for a story on international matchmaking. After the camera crew went home, he stayed in the Ukraine, being found this week in a train station among homeless people.

Cary Dolego, the love-seeking Queen Creek man we wrote about yesterday who's homeless in the Ukraine, has been rejected by "Yulia," the surgeon with whom he'd been e-mailing.

The former write-in candidate for the 2010 Arizona governor's race went to the Ukraine in the spring as part of a matchmaking service, followed by cameras from ABC News.
