AURORA, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) - Nearly three years after 6-year-old Aurora boy Timmothy Pitzen went missing, authorities have released an age-progressed photo of what he might look like now.

The boy went missing May 11, 2011, when his mother Amy Fry-Pitzen, 43, picked him up from from Greenman Elementary School telling school officials that there had been a family emergency, the Beacon-News has reported.

But there was no emergency, and Fry-Pitzen took the boy on a trip. He spent the days leading up to his disappearance at the Brookfield Zoo, a water park in Gurnee, and finally, to a Wisconsin Dells resort where the last known sighting of Timmothy was caught on tape. On May 13, at 11:15 a.m., the mother and son were seen checking out of the Kalahari Resort there.

Two days later, Fry-Pitzen was found dead in a Rockford hotel of an apparent suicide, leaving a note that Timmothy was safe and being cared for, and would never be found, the newspaper reported.

Timmothy is described as a white boy, now 9 years old, with brown eyes and brown hair, according to a flyer from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

“The image created by NCMEC forensic artists is an important tool in our mission to help bring Timmothy home,” said Detective Lee Catavu of the Aurora Police Department in a release.

The age-progressed photo shows what he may look like at age 8, the flyer said.

Anyone with information should contact Aurora Police at (630) 256-5000.
