AURORA, IL- Aurora, Illinois police are calling for a renewed effort to find a young boy -- as six-year old Timmothy Pitzen was last seen one year ago Friday.
His mother picked him up from school in Aurora, Illinois. Three days later she committed suicide in a Rockford motel, leaving a note saying only Timmothy was safe. Timmothy has been missing since then.
Timmothy Pitzen was with his mother at several spots in Wisconsin just beforehand. And Friday, a new tool police hope will help find him.
A Shopko in Racine is one of the last places anyone saw Pitzen. Now, police are offering new clues in this case.
Newly released surveillance video shows Amy Fry-Pitzen and Timmothy at the Key Lime Cove Resort in Gurnee -- as well as the Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. They also made a stop at a Shopko in Racine.
Aurora police are re-interviewing family and witnesses and offering new details about missing items linked to the case.
Police are also examining plants and mud found on the tires of Fry-Pitzen's SUV.
And they continue to investigate an area 100 miles west of Chicago where her last cell phone calls were tracked.
Aurora police are offering a $5,000 reward in this case. They're asking anyone with information to call their local police department.
