Video Shows Missing Boy, Mother Together



    (Published Wednesday, May 25, 2011)

    Surveillance video from the Wisconsin resort where a 6-year-old boy and his mother were last seen was released by authorities Wednesday, nearly two weeks after the boy disappeared.

    The security video from the Kalahari Resort was recorded at around 10:10 a.m. on May 13 and was the last time Timmothy and his mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, 43, were seen together. 

    The pair went missing on May 11 when the mother checked her son out of his westside elementary school.  Over the next two days, the pair visited the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, the Key Lime Cove Resort in Gurnee, and the Kalahari Resort.

    The 43-year-old mother's body was found a motel room on May 14.  Authorities said she took her own life.

    New information from authorities indicates that in the hours before her death, Amy Fry-Pitzen visited a Family Dollar store, in Winnebago, Ill., and purchased a pen, paper and envelopes.  When she checked into the Rockford Inn at 11:15 p.m., her son was not with her, authorities said.

    A note left behind in the hotel room indicated that her son was in someone's care, but it did not identify who that was.

    Despite looking through Fry-Pitzen's computers, conducting interviews with family and friends and widening their physical search, authorities said they have no solid leads on Timmothy Pitzen's whereabouts.

    Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Aurora Police at 630-256-5500.
