Missing child finally found? updated teenager isn't Timmothy Pitzen

Recommended Posts



A 6-year-old boy went missing in 2011. On Wednesday, a teen identified himself to police as the missing child and told them he'd escaped a years-long captivity, according to a Sharonville police report.

The teen was found by authorities in Newport, Kentucky.

Timmothy Pitzen of Aurora, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, would be 14 years old today.

Police say they have not determined the recovered teen's identity.

The teen told police he'd escaped two male captors, one with a spider-web tattoo and the other with a snake tattoo, after they held him for seven years.

He said he ran across a bridge into Kentucky as he fled his captors.


I couldn't imagine how horrible it would be to go through a situation like this.

Authorities have rejected a teenager's claim that he is an Illinois boy who disappeared in 2011 at age 6.

The FBI says DNA testing ruled out the teenager as being Timmothy Pitzen, missing from Aurora, Illinois. Police say the story of teenager found wandering streets in Newport, Kentucky, on Wednesday didn't check out.
