Police, FBI trying to verify teen is boy missing since 2011

A 911 call revealed the moment dispatchers were told a teen calling himself Timmothy Pitzen approached a driver in Newport, Ky., Wednesday saying he had just escaped his captors, according to a report.

People who talked to the boy before police arrived said he was anxious and pleaded for help.

"I've prayed. since he's been gone, God will keep him close and take care of him, and that by some stroke of luck he would be with people that would love him", Jacobs said.

"He looked like he had been beat up", one witness said.

Timmothy Pitzen went missing from Aurora in 2011 when he was 6 years old.

Surveillance video from 2011 shows Timmothy's mother, 43-year-old Amy Fry Pitzen, picked him up from Greenman Elementary School in Aurora on May 11.

Before his disappearance in May of 2011, Pitzen's mother had taken her son out of school and on a trip that covered over 500 miles (800 kilometers) in two days, CNN said.

The 14-year-old says he escaped two men at a Red Roof Inn who have been holding him captive for nearly eight years.

The teen was taken to a local hospital and later transferred to Cincinnati Children's Hospital, across the Ohio River from Newport.

The FBI's Louisville office and the FBI's Cincinnati office confirm they're actively coordinating with Newport police, Cincinnati police, Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and Aurora, Illinois police.

Police from Aurora, Illinois, sent two detectives to the Cincinnati area, where the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local police are investigating. One woman says the boy told her he'd been running for two hours and that he had been passed around for seven years.

Maternal grandmother Alana Anderson celebrated Timmothy's seventh birthday by planting a 7-year-old blue spruce in her backyard, buying him a birthday card and cutting out pictures of things she wanted to buy for him: A skateboard, a remote-control helicopter. The other suspect is short and had a snake tattoo on his arms, the report said.

"You'll never find him", she had written. That is Timmothy Pitzen's birthday.

The report says that the men were driving a "newer model Ford SUV, bearing unknown Wisconsin plates, with a 2nd row, white in color with yellow transfer paint, and a dent on the left back bumper".

Over the years, family members have said that the mother had a history of depression, and her marriage was failing. On May 14, her body was found in a motel room in Rockford.

"The City of Sharonville Police Department, like every other police agency in the greater Cincinnati area, was requested to check their Red Roof Inn hotels regarding this incident", the Facebook post read.

"She felt that her life had come to an end and she was going to end her life and she didn't want to leave him without good parenting".

Timmothy Pitzen was 6 years old when he disappeared in 2011.

A note was found at the scene that said her son was safe, before adding, "You'll never find him". In 2017, James Pitzen told Crime Watch Daily that his wife struggled with mental health issues, but he didn't believe she would harm their son.
