Police still have not found missing Aurora boy Timmothy Pitzen, but they did locate one of his belongings they originally thought went missing from his mother's car May 13 -- the last time the boy was heard from.

Authorities said Saturday they confirmed 6-year-old Timmothy's car seat has been with his maternal grandmother since before May 11, when his mother checked him out of Greenman Elementary School, beginning a trip that started with stops at a few resorts in Illinois and Wisconsin and ended with Amy Fry-Pitzen dead and Timmothy nowhere to be found.


Investigators also noticed Timmothy's Spider-Man backpack was missing from his mother's vehicle when the car was found at the Rockford motel where Fry-Pitzen apparently committed suicide May 14.

The backpack still has not been found, Aurora police said Saturday. Also not located are toys and clothing Fry-Pitzen purchased for Timmothy on May 12 in Racine, Wis., according to a police investigation of credit card records.

A multiagency search for Timmothy is ongoing. Authorities concentrating on the I-88 and I-39 corridors near Sterling and Rock Falls -- where Timmothy and Fry-Pitzen apparently were together last -- came up empty Thursday.
