911 call reveals moment teen calling himself Timmothy Pitzen sought help

911 call reveals moment teen calling himself Timmothy Pitzen sought help

"He walked up to my vehicle and he went, 'Can you help me?'" a 911 caller told dispatchers, according to the affiliate.

"It's been bad. We've been on tenterhooks", she said of the family's disappointment Thursday.

The teen said he had "been kidnapped and he's been traded through all these people and he just wanted to go home", Night said.

Police were called to the neighborhood of brick, two-family homes that date back to the 1960s, and two officers showed up to speak with the boy, Hall explains.

Timmothy Pitzen's grandmother, Alana Anderson, told WISN-TV Wednesday that authorities have told the family very little. He would be 14 years old today. The ABC affiliate in Cincinnati (WCPO) reported that a boy was discovered Wednesday morning at a Red Roof Inn in Newport, Kentucky.

Sharon Hall, who lives in the Newport neighborhood where he was found, told CNN she noticed a "fidgety" boy near a auto.

Police are working to determine the boy's identity, and figure out who the alleged kidnappers might be. The FBI said Thursday that DNA testing ruled him out as being Timmothy who was removed at age 6 by his mother from his Aurora school.

IL police are working with law enforcement in Northern Kentucky to determine if a boy who reportedly told authorities he fled his captors is a child who went missing almost eight years ago. "He didn't produce a driver's license but gave a name and Social Security number", said a report from the Norton Police Department posted on the Norton Post.

The boy first told police he was being held by two white men with bodybuilder builds, according to one police report. One allegedly had a spider web tattoo on his neck and the other a snake tattoo on his arms.

Bates said he agreed with states challenging the rule that the Department of Labor stretched the definition of the "employer". New York, 10 other states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit challenging the Association Health Plan rule.

The teen added that they were in a Ford SUV with Wisconsin licence plates and had been staying at a Red Roof Inn.

The boy indicated he escaped and kept running across a bridge into Kentucky.

Following news of a potential family reunion, a relative said they were not getting their hopes up given the disappointment of previous claims. "But to hear something like that, it's kind of mind-blowing".

Timmothy Pitzen went missing from Aurora in 2011 when he was 6 years old.

Meanwhile, the mother-son pair traveled to the Brookfield Zoo, KeyLime Cove water park and a Kalahari Resorts in the Wisconsin Dells.

Before his disappearance in May of 2011, Pitzen's mother had taken her son out of school and on a trip that covered over 500 miles (800 kilometers) in two days, CNN said. She allegedly left a note that said Pitzen was safe with people who loved him, but would never be found. Police investigating her death said she took steps that suggest she might have, as she said in her note, dropped her son off with a friend.

Of Rini, she said he had "obviously had a frightful time and felt the need to say he was someone else, and [I] hope that they can find his family".

"DNA results have been returned indicating the person in question is not Timmothy Pitzen", FBI Louisville wrote on Twitter.

Timmothy's grandmother said Thursday that her daughter had fought depression for years and was having problems in her marriage to Timmothy's father. "They will be able to verify 100 per cent whether it is him".
