(CNN) — A Michigan boy who was found alive and hiding in his father’s basement after an 11-day search is now in the custody of his mother, a Detroit police spokesman confirmed Thursday afternoon.
Police also talked with Charlie Bothuell for the first time about his disappearance and the events leading up to the bizarre discovery of the boy hidden away in the basement on Wednesday.
Charlie, 12, first met with child psychologists before investigators took a statement from him Thursday, according to Sgt. Mike Woody. But police are not revealing what the boy told them.
