    Chris Reilly, a former world champion MMA fighter, had his championship belts lost by the storage company that housed them. Now he's trying to get them back. Randy Mac reports for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on Monday, May 08, 2017. (Published Monday, May 8, 2017)

    Former mixed martial arts fighter Chris Reilly was a world champion, winning a title belt 15 years ago. Now a coach, he's trained world champions and he's received belts as a thank you.

    "It's a very sentimental moment for a fighter to hand you his world title," Reilly said.

    When Reilly moved, those three belts ended up in storage with a company called FlatRate Moving. Months later, the storage company itself moved.

    "I had no information as to where they had gone," Reilly said.

    [LA] Woman Fights Back After Getting Someone Else's Traffic Tickets

    A Yucaipa woman kept getting traffic tickets from someone who had the same license plate as her. After showing that the real offender’s license plate was from Alabama, she was able to force cities in the Bay Area to rescind their tickets. Randy Mac reports for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 4, 2017.

    He says he only found out after the company called him saying he was behind on rent. He says for months they haven't been able to locate his things.

    "I'm talking about a life's worth of memories and histories," Reilly said.

    Reilly is worried his belts may be lost forever.

    The Better Business Bureau's Steve McFarland says many homeowners and renters insurance policies cover storage units, but you need proof of what you have.

    "It's always good to have a detailed itemized list with photographs," McFarland said.

    That's something Reilly didn't do.

    [LA] Breaking Down College Education Financing

    With a recent bump in state college tuition, we break down how you and your family can get an education without going broke. Randy Mac reports for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

    "My wife and I are both going to be heartbroken if we're not able to retrieve this stuff," he said.

    We waited months for FlatRate Moving to find his stuff. They told Reilly their "team will only communicate (respond) to emails with only you on them" — and not if the I-Team was CC'd. It didn't seem to make a difference.

    Reilly says they never found his belts, though they did return most of his other things.

    He's still in the process of filling out claim forms, hoping for reimbursement. Photos may be all that's left of his world champion achievements.

    "I do still have the memories," Reilly said. "The accomplishments are still mine."
