It’s been almost exactly three years since 6-year-old Timmothy Pitzen’s mother committed suicide, leaving Aurora police with no idea what became of Timmothy.
In the past three years, there have literally been Timmothy sightings in every corner of the country and police have looked into them all.
Back on May 11th, 2011, Timmothy’s mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, picked him up from school and took him on a trip through northern Illinois and Wisconsin.
Three days later, his mother’s body was found in a Rockford motel room, along with a note that said Timmothy was safe and with someone who loved him.
A search turned up no sign of the body.
Last Friday, almost three years to the day later, police released an age-progression image of the boy prepared by the Center for Missing and Exploited Children and on that very day, a woman in Rockton, in northern Illinois says she saw Timmothy at her garage sale.
In the last few days, police have sent the woman who reported the latest sighting video of Timmothy to help her determine if he is the child she saw.
The lead detective has been following-up with her. So far, she has not been able to provide him with a definitive answer.
