The father of a missing boy was told live on the air, that his son was found alive, in his own basement, in a bizarre case in Michigan. Nancy Grace broke the news to 12-year-old Charlie Bothuell's dad. And she wasn't gentle about it.

Charlie was discovered behind boxes and a 55 gallon drum, despite four searches of the basement by family, police, the FBI and cadaver dogs. Charlie's father was stunned by the news and told reporters, 'I'm shocked, because I looked, the Detroit Police looked, the FBI looked. For anyone to imply that I knew he was in the basement is absurd.'

WXYZ in Detroit says Bothuell's stepmother, Monique Dillard-Bothuel has been taken into custody for violating her probation. She'd plead guilty earlier this year to purchasing a gun without a permit.

Nancy Grace continues to follow the bizarre case, giving updates on Twitter.

The public is also weighing in on Twitter.

What do you think? If I was told my child had been found after being missing almost 2 weeks, I'd bolt from that interview chair so fast. And where were the tears.

This case may get stranger before it's over. I'm just glad the boy is safe.
