As you recall back in 2011 he went missing after his mother Amy Fry-Pitzen commited suicide at a Rockford motel and then there was a nationwide search to look for him. Several years have passed without a trace, until now.
The teen described his kidnappers as two men who are strong in stature, one with a spider-web tattoo on his neck and the other with a snake tattoo on his arms.
They drove a newer Ford SUV with Wisconsin plates
Police are trying to confirm the identity of the teen.
