Missing 12-Year-Old Detroit Boy Found Alive and Safe


A 12-year-old Detroit boy last seen about a week and a half ago has been found alive in his father’s basement.

Detroit police spokesman Sgt. Mike Woody says officers were serving a search warrant at the home near downtown Wednesday afternoon when they stumbled upon Charlie Bothuell V.

Woody says he’s unsure of the boy’s physical condition, but “he’s alive.”

Police Chief James Craig earlier Wednesday told reporters that investigators searching for the boy were “not ruling out the possibility of homicide” but still hoped to find him alive.

The chief also says Charlie Bothuell IV took a polygraph test about his son’s disappearance, but the boy’s stepmother declined to do so.
