Man Claiming to Be Missing Boy Is Not Timmothy Pitzen

Police arrived at a Wadsworth Road parking lot and got a vague report from the man about some acquaintances he'd picked up who started fighting in the vehicle. DNA testing is now underway, which officials expect to take about 24 hours.

Fry-Pitzen would be discovered dead May 14 in a Rockford, Illinois motel room. The witness also said you could "see the fear on him and how nervous he was".

"We still have no confirmation of the identity of the person located, but hope to have something later this afternoon or early this evening", Aurora police said in a statement posted Thursday on Facebook and Twitter.

Newport Police identified the person who claimed to be Pitzen as Brian Rini, a 23-year-old man from Medina, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland.

He was released from an OH prison less than a month ago after serving more than a year for burglary and vandalism. Police said the men drove a white SUV with Wisconsin plates.

Authorities have rejected a teenager's claim that he is an IL boy who disappeared in 2011 at age 6.

"In that same time-frame, we've had over 150 cases where the children were recovered after being missing for more than a decade", Bischoff said.

Pitzen's grandmother said that despite today's false alarm, the family still hopes to find him someday, according to ABC. The FBI has not confirmed whether the child is linked to the Pitzen case.

The male child in question was found on the west side of Newport Wednesday.

A missing boy by the same name disappeared when he was just 6 years old on May 11, 2011. Employees found her dead in her room the next day. One had a spiderweb tattoo on his neck, and the other had a snake tattoo on his arm, the report said.

Police also found credit card receipts showing that she bought children's clothing and toys in Wisconsin.

The FBI is now involved in this investigation, reports CBS News correspondent Adriana Diaz.

He told police in Sharonville, Ohio, that he fled the Red Roof Inn near Cincinnati Airport and "kept running until he ran across a bridge into" the state of Kentucky. After leaving the resort, Fry-Pitzen purchased children's clothes in Racine, Wis., and gas and beverages in Johnson Creek, Wis., authorities said.

Aurora police sent two detectives to check out the teenager's story.

The FBI and police are working to verify whether the boy is Timmothy.

"I'm very hopeful that it's him and that he's ok and he's been in a good place when he was gone and he's gonna come back to us", she was quoted as saying.

Among the unconfirmed sightings was one in 2014 when a woman in Rockton, Illinois contacted police after seeing a boy who looked like Timmothy at her garage sale.

Police in suburban Cincinnati's Sharonville wrote in a short incident report that the teen said Wednesday morning that he had "just escaped from two kidnappers" he described as white men with body builder-type physiques.

"Timmothy Pitzen remains an active NCMEC case, and his missing poster is on our website", she said.
