WASHINGTON — 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 o 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.
