The family of Timmothy are now awaiting the results of a DNA test, which are expected in the next 24 hours.

The boy, who was covered in bruises, told a stranger in Kentucky that he had been held by kidnappers at an inn in Cincinnati, Ohio, but had managed to escape.


He said after fleeing from the room he 'kept running across a bridge' and seemingly crossed the state line in to Kentucky. According to CBS Chicago, a woman who spoke to the boy said he had been running for 'two hours' and that he'd been 'passed around for seven years'.

An official report about the case states: "Timothy described the two kidnappers as two male, whites, body-builder type build.

Pitzen, from Aurora in Illinois, disappeared after his mother picked him up from school and took him on a holiday, before killing herself.

Her body was found in a motel room and there was no sign of Timmothy. According to reports at the time, a note was found which said the boy was safe but added, 'You'll never find him.'

Earlier today, Timmothy's grandmother, Alana Anderson, said she didn't want to get her hopes up.

Speaking to WISN-TV, she said: "We just know a 14-year-old boy was found and went to the police.

"We don't want to get our hopes up and our family's hopes up until we know something.

"We've had false reports and false hopes before."
