    I, at first, watched this on the Today Show, and they didn't say anything about the child being barricaded in the basement. Just said that they found him there. Even then, I thought the Dad's reactions were a little over the top and staged. Had it been me? I wouldn't have continued to sit there, gasping in surprise. I would have been ripping off the mic and running home.
    I am with you. I would have run out of the room.

    This is the original article I saw.

    SEE IT: Dad learns his missing son is alive in family's basement

    It's unclear why the missing boy staked out in his own home for nearly two weeks, but sources told My Fox Detriot reported police are investigating possible child abuse charges against his father.

    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    This brings up so many questions -- How did they not find him? The family was in the basement, the FBI was in the basement, the Detroit police were in the basement. I will be interested in following this to see what happened.
    Well, we don't have enough information to really know what happened, but the idea that the father didn't know that his son was in the basement and that the FBI and LEOs searched it as well is incredulous. Unless the father brought him back to the basement after it was searched...

    Keep your eyes on dad. The cops certainly are.

    Or the stepmom brought him back. That's what it might be shaping up to look like. Maybe the father was abusing the boy, so the stepmom helped him to hide. She fed him, gave him water, helped him hide when the police were there, etc. Blue_State posted a link that said that an "escape tunnel" had been fabricated so he could get in and out if he needed to.

    Yeah I had the same thoughts. We have seen this movie before.

    The boy is 12 so he will tell what happened. He wasn't there the whole time. The dogs wouldn't have missed him!
