Disappearance of Timmothy Pitzen

Timmothy was born in Aurora, Illinois to parents James “Jim” Pitzen and Amy Joan Marie Fry-Pitzen in 2004.

On May 11, 2011, when she was just 6, his father dropped him off at his kindergarten class at Greenman Elementary School, however, his mother checked him out of class between 8:10 and 8:15 AM CDT, citing a non-existent family emergency.

 

Timmothy and his mother traveled more than 500 miles over two days. Mother and son seem relaxed and cheerful in the security video footage that investigators recovered from their stops.

During the trip, Timmothy’s mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, made several brief calls to family members, including one to her mother. She assured her that she and Timmothy were safe.
The boy also spoke to a family member and didn’t seem to be in any distress.

On the morning of May 13, her lifeless body was found by a hotel maid along with a note. In the note, Amy apologized for the mess she had created, and explained that Timmothy would never be found, but was safe with people who would care for him.

A similar note was also mailed to her mother from the hotel.

Timmothy’s family, including his father, has continued searching for him.

Unbelievable returning

On April 3, 2019, a teenager claiming to be Timmothy Pitzen was found by police in response to calls from local residents in Newport, Kentucky, after he was seen wandering the streets after reportedly running across a bridge from Ohio.

A 14-year-old boy told authorities in Campbell County, Kentucky, that he fled a Red Roof Inn where he and the two men who held him for seven years were staying, according to a Sharonville, Ohio, police report obtained by WCPO.

He was unsure of the hotel’s location, police said, but it appears the boy “kept running until he ran across a bridge into” Kentucky.

Police in Sharonville checked all Red Roof Inn hotels in the area and did not find anything, the report said. Sharonville is about 12 miles northeast of Cincinnati. Law enforcement has not confirmed the teen’s identity.

Police said the teen described his kidnappers as two white men of “bodybuilder type build, one with a spiderweb tattoo on his neck and the other with a snake tattoo on his arms,” the report said.
The men drove a Ford SUV with Wisconsin plates, police said.
