    I told myself not to get my hopes up but I have anyway. I can't imagine what Timmothy's family is going through right now.

    Wow, what a story.

    I never heard of Timmothy's case until today. I knew there would be a thread on him here.

    As a newcomer to the case, it does seem like this is the same boy. My first hunch was that the mom handed him off to someone she thought would be a good place for him, but she was duped into giving him into a network of bad people who passed him around. I'm frightened for him....but so glad he escaped, if this is Timmothy. And if it's not Timmothy, I'm glad he is in a place to get help.

    Can you imagine what the father is going through right now? It's unbelievable, impossible to imagine.

    I hope this turns out to be Timmothy and he is able to recover and resume his life as it was meant to be.

    Bittersweet.

    #NEW at 11PM: We showed neighbors pictures of Pitzen and they said the boy they saw looks like him. One neighbor said the boy she saw today looked much more mature, like 'he'd been through a lot.'

    I would caution people using the word scam. Unless this is a The Imposter (Nicholas Barclay) situation which I would think most likely not, no matter who he is, this is a traumatized child who has likely been through hell. I am most inclined to think it is not Timmothy. I stopped following true crime cases some years ago. How often are missing children found alive after years? Of course there was Steven Stayner and Shawn Hornbeck(?). Any other cases? Both of them suffered horrific abuse by their captors. People don't kidnap children just to put them with new, happy families. I am glad a DNA test is being done immediately to get concrete answers so there is no chance of a repeat of the Barclay situation. I would love to be wrong about this not being him. PS DCFS workers are doing gods work. They aren't selling children. Good grief.

    Update: The teen found in Newport today gave his birthday as "10-18-04," according to police audio. That's the DOB of Timmothy Pitzen, who disappeared nearly eight years ago.

    Same here, never heard of this. If it is him, I wonder if he's had any education or can even read?

    I am trying to catch up....This may have been addressed - if so, just ignore this post.
    I just read about this case - it is new to me.
    I keep seeing people post that maybe the mom didn't really commit suicide. Why are people saying this?

    She was found dead and her body had an autopsy:

    I think some of us were thinking that if he really was kidnapped, then maybe the kidnappers killed his mom and made it appear to be suicide. I think suicide is more likely though.

    Ummm she said "corrupt individuals"....FACT IS: CPS all over the country has major issues. The stories are far and wide of children being lost and 'foster parents' being all kinds of messed up. Hours on Google will corroborate this. I would direct your angst at the 'corrupt individuals', not @MyBelle who simply spoke a sad bit of reality.

    With that said...... THANK YOU for all you do to help children/families!

    I'm not saying it was or wasn't suicide. If this boy is Timmothy, her case deserves a second look. There are cases in which ppl have written suicide notes under duress.

    That could explain why they were so quick to publicly speculate about his identity. Either way this poor boy has been through hell it seems.

    I was reading it as if some thought she was alive. Just a misinterpretation on my part. ;)

    ...just marking my spot here.
    I believe 100% this is Timothy....my heart is in anguish over what this boy has been through. unfortunately, I can imagine and I wish that was not so.
    Miracles do happen....

    I agree about DCS - I don't think that is an issue here.

    I can't speak for others, and I'm new to the case, but I think it is possible someone (NOT DCS) convinced the mom they would take good care of the boy, but they had no intention on taking good care of him.
