Missing for 11 days, 12-year-old Detroit boy found alive in parents' basement Published: June 26, 2014

A picture of Charlie Bothuell V — the one of him in a buttoned-up, collared shirt and pinstriped suit, smiling at the camera — was repeatedly issued by Detroit police.

The 12-year-old was missing.

But on Wednesday, Detroit Police Chief James Craig delivered good news: “We have Charlie.”

In the course of the day, the case took major turns. In the afternoon, Craig said police weren’t ruling out the possibility of a homicide in the child’s disappearance. A short time later, Craig announced that police found Charlie, missing since June 14, alive in the basement of his home.
