Missing Man Photograph
Nicholas Simmons, 20, of Greece, N.Y., warms himself on a steam grate with three homeless men by the Federal Trade Commission, just blocks from the Capitol, during frigid temperatures in Washington, Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014. On New Year’s Day, Simmons disappeared from his parents’ house in a small upstate New York town, leaving behind his wallet, cellphone and everything else. Four days later, an Associated Press photographer, looking for a way to illustrate unusually cold weather, took his picture as he warmed himself on a steam grate a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol. His parents Paul and Michelle Simmons saw the photograph in USA Today Sunday morning after it was brought to their attention through a Facebook page set up to help find their son, according to police and family friends, and were able to report his location to D.C. police who transported him to a hospital where he was reunited with his father and brother who drove all day to find him.

Dozens gathering to help feed the homeless in D.C. for the holidays


WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — The holidays are a time of giving back, and in D.C. this weekend, a group will gather for a full-on spread of food just for the homeless.

Dozens are expected to come out to volunteer to serve food for the event being held by "Food Dude USA," Brandon Frye. A coat drive was also held earlier in the month.

D.C. is one of the areas in the country most affected by homelessness, with over 7,400 estimated to be without a permanent home every day in 2017. Even though homelessness is reportedly declining in D.C. and across the country, the issue still affects over 553,000 across America.
