A Western New York man missing since last Wednesday has been located in Washington, D.C. 20 year Nicholas Simmons was last seen leaving his home in Greece, a suburb of Rochester, on New Year's Day. Family members began a search for him by contacting local media and making posts on Facebook. In a strange twist of coincidence, family members told local police they saw a man in a photograph published by USA TODAY in Sunday's Democrat and Chronicle who looked like Simmons. The photograph ran with a package on cold weather sweeping across the country with a photo identifying a homeless man wrapped in a blanket on Saturday named "Nick," just blocks from the U.S. Capitol. Sunday night, Greece police said they contacted police in Washington, who located Simmons.
