COPS investigating the strange disappearance of six-year-old Timothy Pitzen have said there was a "concerning" amount of the boys blood on the backseat of his mother's SUV.  Three months ago tragic Amy Fry-Pitzen picked up her only son from his Aurora, IL school, stopped off at the zoo and water parks, but then she killed herself.
Timothy has yet to be found and three months on cops have released a few more details in the hope that it may spark some more help from the general public. 
Spokesman Dan Ferrelli told the Chicago Sun Times: “We have not made forward progress in the investigation. Hopefully, the information we put out is going to spark the memory of some person or get someone to come forward. Even the smallest piece of information could be important.”
At this point they are continuing to examine Amy’s 2004 Ford Expedition which was found May 14 parked at the Rockford motel where Amy killed herself. 
Before turning the car over to a specialist forensic lab, Aurora investigators found what they called “a concerning amount” of Timothy’s blood in the backseat. 
Ferrelli would not discuss the amount of blood found, but said that no one else's blood had been found.
Cops have also released video taken by the pair, shortly before her death, in which Amy seems happy. 
According to her family, she also seemed normal during her last conversations.
But then on May 14, she switched her phone off for the last time and testimony at a coroner’s inquest revealed Amy stabbed herself in the motel. 
She left behind a five-sentence suicide note saying Timothy was somewhere safe with people who love him and who will take care of him. 
“You will never find him,” she wrote, according to testimony at the inquest where Police testified that Amy made previous suicide attempts.
Investigators have still not found Amy’s cell phone, I-Pass, Timothy’s Spider-Man backpack, or any of the toys or other items that were missing from the Pitzen vehicle.
Ferelli said: "We still have no solid lead. It is frustrating to investigators and it’s frustrating to the community. The fact is, a lot of police officers have kids Timothy’s age and they take this personally.” 
“You’re always hopeful these cases have a positive outcome.”
Police continue to ask people in the I-88 and I-39 corridors to look for the items. Anyone coming across them should leave the item alone and call local police or 911.
