It has been 10 years since Timmothy Pitzen disappeared from Aurora, Illinois
On the morning of May 11, 2011 Timmothy’s mother Amy Pitzen-Fry picked him up from his Aurora middle school. She told school officials there was a family emergency. But there was not. Instead she took the then-6-year old on a trip. The two went to the zoo, a water park and then finally a resort in the Wisconsin Dells.
Two days later, the Pitzen-Fry was found in a Rockford, Illinois hotel. She had died by suicide. She left behind a note saying, “Timmothy was safe, with someone who loved him— and he would never be found.”
Tuesday, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created and released a new image f what he may look like as a 16-year-old.
