FBI Reveals DNA Results of Boy Claiming To Be Child Kidnapped 8 Years Ago

FBI Reveals DNA Results of Boy Claiming To Be Child Kidnapped 8 Years Ago The DNA test identifying the young teen claiming to be Timmothy Pitzen has come back after many people wondered if an almost eight-year case could have come to an end. On April 3, 2019, a teenage boy was seen nervously pacing a neighborhood in Sharonville, Ohio, near Cincinnati. The young boy’s reaction to passing cars made residents in the community believe that he was running away from danger rather than trying to cause it. Shortly after someone called 911 and said, “He walked up to my car and he went, ‘Can you help me? I just want to get home. Please help me.’ I asked him what’s going on, and he tells me he’s been kidnapped and he’s been traded through all these people and he just wanted to go home.” When law enforcement officers arrived on the scene, they asked the teen his name but they were not expecting what would come out of his mouth: Timmothy Pitzen. His father, Jim Pitzen, dropped Timmothy off at his elementary school in Aurora, Illinois, on May 11, 2011, but his mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, checked their son out of school early. Once Pitzen realized that his wife and son had disappeared, he filed a report in order to try to bring them home safely. Timmothy was last seen on May 13, 2011, with his mother at a resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Fry-Pitzen was found in a Rockford, Illinois, hotel room where investigators concluded that she had died by suicide. The boy who was found in Ohio was able to give the correct birth date as well as give his father’s name. Aurora Police traveled to Ohio to perform a DNA test on the boy who claimed to be Timmothy Pitzen. On April 4, 2019, FBI Louisville tweeted, Now the biggest questions are, who is the 14-year-old boy and how did he know so many details about Timmothy’s life? And where is Timmothy? If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Timmothy Pitzen, please leave a tip with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
