US teen alleges escaping kidnappers after 7 years

Washington: Authorities in the US state of Kentucky have launched a probe after a 14-year-old who identified himself as missing Illinois boy Timmothy Pitzen told the police that he had escaped his kidnappers who held him for seven years, the media reported.

The boy told the authorities in Campbell County, Kentucky, that he fled a Red Roof Inn where he and the two men who had held him were staying, CNN reported.

He was unsure of the hotel’s location, the police said, but it appears the boy “kept running until he ran across a bridge into” Kentucky.

The police said the teen described his kidnappers as two white men of “bodybuilder type build, one with a spider web tattoo on his neck and the other with a snake tattoo on his arms”.

Law enforcement is yet to confirm the teen’s identity.

Timmothy, then six-year-old, went missing in May 2011 after his mother took him out of his Aurora, Illinois, school citing a family emergency and they went on a three-day road trip with stops at zoos and water parks.

He was last seen at a water park in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, according to the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.

Timmothy’s mother was found dead later in a Rockford, Illinois motel. She had killed herself.

A note was found saying that her son, Timmothy, was safe with people who would love and care for him. “You’ll never find him,” it added.
