WASHINGTON (AP) — A missing man who was reunited with his family after he was photographed while pressed against a steam vent to keep warm in downtown Washington is on his way back home to upstate New York.

Family friend Peter Gugino (guh-GEE-noh) says 20-year-old Nicholas Simmons was discharged from a hospital Sunday night and spent the night in a Washington hotel with his father and older brother. Gugino says the three men are now heading home by car to Greece, N.Y.

An Associated Press photographer snapped a picture of Simmons on Saturday morning to illustrate the unusually cold weather in the region. After the photo was published, it was brought to the attention of his parents, who had reported their son missing on New Year's Day.

    Vacant properties aren't just eye sores to the community. These abandoned homes increase the chance of crime, promote illegal activity, and are serious fire hazards. "Often we find that even though it might be boarded up someone has found a way to enter the structure. And as it gets cold, obviously those people may try to start a fire or something inside to stay warm. And as a result of course we get a structure fire," said Community Development Administrator James Allen. ...
