Back in 2011, in Rockford, there was a story about a woman that committed suicide in a motel room. She had a small child named Timothy Pitzen that completely disappeared after the incident. Here we are a little over 8 years later. According to, a boy told Cambell County Police in Kentucky that he was, in fact, the missing boy Timothy Pitzen. Now 14, he told authorities that he had been kidnapped and held against his will for 7 years by two white males and was finally able to escape.

He told authorities that the two suspects were two white males with bodybuilder type builds. One had black curly hair and a t-shirt with a Mountain Dew logo on it, he was wearing jeans and he had a spider web tattoo on his neck. The other was said to be shorter in height and had a snake tattoo on his arm. They were driving a newer white Ford SUV with Wisconsin plates.

The boy said he was being held at a Red Roof Inn but he could not tell police exactly where. The FBI told a TV station that they are currently doing a DNA test to see if the boy really is Timothy. If it is Timothy, it's one of the most amazing stories I've ever heard and I can't imagine what he has gone through.
