VIDEO: HLN's Nancy Grace Informs Dad That Missing Son Found Alive in His Basement
HLN's Nancy Grace was in the midst of interviewing the father of a missing 12-year-old Detroit boy when it was revealed that the boy had just been found alive in the man's basement. Watch below as the newswoman reveals news of the report to the father live on air.
Dad Charles Bothuell IV was appearing on Grace's HLN show to appeal for help in finding his son. "How could your son be alive in your basement?!" yelled Grace as news of the boys whereabouts became public. "I don't understand why you guys would have reported he was missing - and all our viewers were on the lookout for him!" she continued, "Have you checked your cell phone?" Bothuell responded that his cell phone was dead.
This morning Grace told CNN, "Well, you know, I cover so many cases of missing children where I ask viewers to hep me find them, and typically we have a bad outcome in cases where child been gone these many days... So big headline is, it's a miracle he's alive."
Detroit Police Chief James Craig told NBC News this morning that the results of the father's lie-detector test were inconclusive. In addition, his townhouse had been searched several times, and investigators were not certain the boy had been in the basement for the entire period that he was missing.
