It seemed to be a day like any other – but it turned out to be anything but. James Pitzen dropped his son, Timmy, off at school on the morning of May 11, 2011. By the time the dad went to pick up the six-year-old that afternoon, however, the little boy was gone. And as the months went by, few leads subsequently arose in the case – yet Pitzen nevertheless held out hope. Then, eight years later, it seemed that the Illinois man’s wish to see his son again had finally come true. Someone stepped forward alleging to be the missing boy.
