Peter Theo Curtis was handed over to UN representatives on Sunday, just days after another U.S. reporter, James Foley, was beheaded by the Islamic State group.

Curtis was abducted in Antakya, Turkey, in October 2012 where he was planned to enter Syria, according to Al Jazeera.

Footage released on June 30 shows a healthy-looking albeit disheveled Curtis.

In the video obtained by Al Jazeera, Curtis read from a prepared script stating his name and profession, saying he was a journalist from Boston, Massachusetts.

He said he had been well treated and ‘had everything’ he needed.

‘Everything has been perfect, food, clothing, even friends now,’ he said on the tape, according to the broadcaster.
