A 14 year-old boy found wandering the streets covered in bruises claims he is a missing child who vanished seven years ago.
The youngster, discovered bruised on the streets of Cincinnati, Wednesday told a passerby that he is Timmothy Pitzen, who vanished in May 2011 aged six after his father left him off at elementary school near their home in Aurora, Illinois.
He told the shocked Good Samaritan that he had been held by kidnappers for the last seven years.
The boy said that he had managed to escape from a nearby Red Roof Inn hotel, before fleeing across a bridge from the Ohio side of the city and into the neighboring state of Kentucky.
A woman who met the youngster told CBS Chicago that he appeared very agitated and scared and claimed that he had been passed around for the last seven years.
After being dropped off at school by his father, Timmothy was picked up that evening by his mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, 43.
She took Timmothy on a three day vacation, including trips to the zoo and several water parks, before checking into a motel and killing herself.
A note found afterwards claimed the then six year-old was safe in the care of others, and added Youll never find him.
After being taken to police, the boy claiming to be Timmothy gave a description of his alleged kidnappers.
Timothy described the two kidnappers as two male, whites, body-builder type build, an official report said.
