Charles Bouthell appeared on "Nancy Grace" to talk about his 12-year old son, Charlie, who had been missing since Father's Day. Grace suddenly confronts Bouthell with a report that the boy had been found alive – in the basement of his house.
Bouthell is speechless as Grace reveals the scant details and presses him on the issue. The father repeatedly says that he, the boy's mother and various authorities searched the house, even with dogs, and came up empty.
It's a bizarre live TV moment, and police are still unwrapping the mystery. The latest from Click On Detroit is that Charlie was found behind a makeshift barricade in his father's basement with bedding and food. Police believe it's unlikely the 12-year-old built the barricade by himself.
Charlie has been released from the hospital, and police are speaking with him.
