In response to Matt Berdahl's question, here's the relevant citation: INA Sec. 301 Nationals and Citizens of the US at birth which states "The following shall be nationals and citizens of the US at birth: (f) a person of unknown parentage found in the US while under the age of five years, until shown, prior to his attaining the age of twenty-one years, not to have been born in the US;" Whether such a person would qualify as a "natural born citizen" is an open question, but I would think the answer would be yes, such a person would be considered a natural born citizen.
