Shortly after HLN's Nancy Grace tells the father of a missing Detroit boy on live TV that his son was found alive in his basement, the boy's stepmother was taken into custody on a warrant for probation violation.

Police are investigating if the boy was abused. He is now staying with his biological mother and other relatives.

In a statement following his Nancy Grace interview, the boy's father said, "For anybody to imply that I somehow knew that my son was in the basement is absurd and it's wrong. I love my son. I'm glad that he's home and he's going to have the future that he deserves."
