From a mathematical perspective, I can only argue that it's out there somewhere, but the odds of finding it in our solar system (which will be the limit of our travel in my lifetime, probably) seem pretty long. Who knows, Mars and Europa are looking like possibilities.
I'd like for it to happen, not least just to see the ****************-storm.

There is the chance that some microscopic organism or organic molecules will be found on Mars, but other than that I don't see a chance at all in my lifetime. Also, I don't think organic molecules, if found on Mars, would be all that earth-shattering.
With luck, I've got about 40 years or so left. Yes, I think we might just discover life "out there" in that time frame. I suspect it'll result from better and better techniques for analyzing other Earth-like planets we are discovering...
Due to our limitations in travel range, I'd sooner expect them to find us than us to find them. We've been generating millions of "beacons" with radio/tv/satellite transmissions for a long time. Those don't just fade out.
