Missing Aurora boy's car seat found
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.
