An Ohio reporter finally got to fulfill a promise to a once-missing woman’s mother Tuesday.

A reporter for 19 Action News, Bill Safos, had covered Amanda Berry’s disappearance since the beginning.

Berry was last seen after finishing her shift at a Cleveland Burger King back in 2003.

Through the course of the investigation into her disappearance, Safos grew quite close to her family.

Shortly before her passing, Ashley’s mother, Louwana, bought a shirt and tie for Safos. She made him promise that he wear them on “the day Mandy comes home.”

Safos was proud to wear those clothes Tuesday.

Monday night, Berry along with her daughter and two other missing women – Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight – were found inside a home. They’re now being cared for at a nearby hospital.

Three men, including homeowner Ariel Castro, were placed under arrest following the discovery.
