Sources are reporting the missing boy Timmothy Pitzen may have been located.  Sources said a teen was able to escape two alleged kidnappers. He called police and now police are investigating to see if it is him or not.

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.
