A boy who had been missing for 11 days was found alive and well in his father's basement, Detroit police say, and the drama played out last night on TV.

Charlie Bothuell, 12, went missing on June 14. His father, Charles Bothuell IV, had appeared on Nancy Grace to appeal for help finding the boy.

While he was on the air, the boy was found in his basement. When Grace informed him of this, he stunned to silence and nearly began hyperventilating:

Bothuell said the basement where the boy was found had been repeatedly searched by local police, the FBI and his family. Nancy was not buying it.

It's hard to say if Bothuell was being defensive or just in a state of utter shock with his reactions, but the whole thing was definitely a little strange.

Authorities say they have no idea how the boy ended up in the basement, whether he was there the whole time or whether he was recently put there.

A rep for the Detroit PD confirmed that police dogs previously combed the house at least four times prior to June 25 and did not turn up the boy.

Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson's son was killed in 2013, allegedly by Joseph Robert Patterson - a boyfriend of the boy's mother.

Astonishingly, Patterson was freed on $750,000 bond while he awaited trial. That waiting period came to an end today, as Patterson was arrested for allegedly kidnapping the child's mother.

Nicholas Wig is officially a Dumbest Criminals Hall of Fame candidate after breaking into a house and deciding to check Facebook during the robbery.

Not on his phone, mind you, but on the computer of James Wood, whose stole cash, credit cards, a watch and phone Wig was in the process of stealing.

Then he didn't even log out! Nick is not you'd call stealthy at robbing people.

When Wood returned to find his home ransacked, "I started to panic," the Minnesota homeowner said. "Then I noticed he had pulled up his Facebook profile."

Wig's session was still in progress, so Wood posted using Wig's profile.

Saying Wig had burglarized his home, he even shared his phone number to see if someone would call with information. Wig texted him later that day.

Katie Cleary, who became famous as one of the models on Deal Or No Deal, was recently spotted in Cannes with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrian Grenier.

The one person absent in the pictures of her party hopping in the South of France was her husband, who according to reports, committed suicide last weekend.

In the wake of the questionable snapshots surfacing in the press, Andrew Stern, 40, shot himself on Sunday at a shooting range in the San Fernando Valley.

Reports indicate the businessman and his wife, who has appeared in bit roles on Entourage and Chuck, were having marital issues and headed toward divorce.

That may have contributed to his stress, although sources report that he was reportedly also struggling financially and suffered from a history of depression.

The 32-year-old model issued a statement in the aftermath of the tragedy.

U.S. women's soccer star Hope Solo entered a not guilty plea in court Monday after her weekend domestic violence arrest in Washington State.

She is accused of assaulting two relatives in a drunken outburst.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist was released on the conditions she avoid contact with her half-sister and a 17-year-old nephew, and that she not drink alcohol.

A pretrial hearing was set for the morning of August 11.

Dressed in a white shirt and black pants, Solo said little, telling the judge "I do" when asked if she understood the domestic violence assault charges against her.

Solo was arrested for domestic violence assault after a 911 call in which a male reported that a woman would not stop "hitting people" or leave the house.

Meanwhile, Solo's 17-year-old nephew is speaking out, telling TMZ that he pulled a gun on the athlete to try to get her to stop attacking him ... to no avail.

Barbie is ready to embrace a modern, 21st Century career challenge as an entrepreneur, according to Mattel, the manufacturer of the iconic doll.

At Toy Fair this week, Mattel announced that Entrepreneur Barbie would be joining its roster in the brand's I Can Be career line as its Career of the Year.

Entrepreneur Barbie

Entrepreneur Barbie sports a sleek pink shift dress and carries a tiny tablet and smartphone. Her hair is styled in a poofy but professional style.

The iconic fashion doll has held more than 150 jobs during her half-century reign, many of them glass ceiling breakers, long before the 2014 iteration.

Still, with nearly 8.6 million female business owners these days, it’s not a stretch that the newest career for women is one that Barbie forges herself.

Whatever it may be, Barbie can do it, even if she's going through a midlife crisis of sorts. Doll sales peaked in the '90s, and dipped 13 percent last year alone.
