    Aurora police are leading the search for a missing 6-year-old boy whose mother was found dead today in a Rockford motel room from an apparent suicide.

    The mother, Amy J. Fry-Pitzen, 43, was discovered dead by Rockford police this afternoon inside of a motel room in the 3800 block of 11th Street in Rockford, with no signs of her son, Timothy, Aurora police said in a news release.

    Fry-Pitzen, of the 400 block of North Highland Avenue in Aurora, suffered slit wrists, authorities said.

    The mom left a note saying that Timothy was fine and that she left him in the care of unnamed individuals, authorities said. Aurora detectives are working with other police departments in Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa hoping to gain new leads. Fry-Pitzen has several relatives and friends in Iowa, police added.

    After Fry-Pitzen's husband reported the pair missing on Thursday, police discovered that Fry-Pitzen had checked her son out of his school the previous morning.

    Timothy is described as a white, about 4-foot-2 inches tall, weighing about 70 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

    Aurora Police have confirmed that Amy and Timothy stayed at the Key Lime Cove Resort in Gurnee, Illinois on Wednesday night; and the Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells on Thursday night. Amy was also seen at Sullivan's Foods in the 700 block of Elida Street in Winnebago, Illinois, at around 8:00 p.m., Friday.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...ssing-after-mother-found-dead-20110514Several of the woman's family members and acquaintances spoke with her Friday. Fry-Pitzen told them that she and her son were fine and not in danger. One relative spoke with the child, who didn't sound as if he was in any distress, police said.,0,5866281.story?track=rss

    Mom checks Timothy out of school and then kills herself?

    I really hope that note is true and he is safe somewhere. But this doesn't sound good.

    I have the feeling this is going to turn out badly. What kind of "not in a good place" was she in? Was she running from her husband? Were they estranged? Was she being treated for mental illness already?

    If the object wasn't to deprive the husband of the child, why not state where the boy is?

    Those resorts she went to are typically visited by people with children. My worst fears say she wanted to treat her son to something nice because she knew what she was going to do.

    I hope I am wrong, but I do not think that precious little boy is with us any longer.

    I agree with the pessimistic doubts, sadly. Why check your son out of school while you are
    going to go and commit suicide? That makes no sense. And taking him to those fun places reeks of earlier stories of parents who have done the same thing, right before their murder/suicides. I am very scared for this poor child.

    Soyesterday, the two boys could be twins if you compare the pics, but the missing boy is described as 4ft 2in, 70 lbs. the boy whose boby was found is 3ft 8in, and only 45 lbs.

    Still, I guess it could be him if either description was reported incorrectly. 70 lbs is awfully heavy for a six year old!

    Also, one has blue eyes, the other brown eyes.


    UID Child:
    Steve McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety said the boy is believed to be between 4 and 6 years old with dirty blond hair and blue eyes.
    Police said the boy is 3 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 45 pounds.

    VS.

    The missing boy is described as 4 feet, 2 inches, weighing 70 pounds, with brown hair and eyes.

    The report at wlsam.com notes that Timothy was last seen with his mom Amy on Friday morning. One of the friends or relatives spoke with him by phone shortly after noon on Friday.

    After that, Amy was seen at a store and checking in to the motel where her body would later be found. She was apparently alone.

    This is heartbreaking. What an adorable smile. His father must be inconsolable.

    There is plenty of farmland, open spaces, etc between Winnebago and Rockford. I am praying hard for that little boy. I hope he is safe somewhere.

    This reminds me too much of Skelton, telling people about a 'friend' who he gave the children safely to. And of course, Casey Anthony.
