A 12-year-old boy who had been missing for a week and a half and was the subject of an extensive police search was found alive and well Wednesday in the basement of his home.

Officers discovered the boy while serving a search warrant on the home as part of their investigation into his disappearance. It's not clear if the boy had been there the entire time; officers had been inside the home before and cadaver dogs searched the house last week.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said when police found Charlie Bothuell V, he appeared to be hiding and did not announce himself. Hours earlier, Craig had told reporters that investigators were "not ruling out the possibility of homicide" in the

RIO DE JANEIRO -- FIFA banned Uruguay striker Luis Suarez from all football activities for four months on Thursday for biting an opponent at the World Cup, a punishment that rules him out of the rest of the tournament and the start of the upcoming Premier League season.

The ban also covers Uruguay's next nine international games, which goes beyond the next four months and rules him out of next year's Copa America. It will likely carry over to qualifying matches for the 2018 World Cup.

FIFA also fined the Liverpool striker 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000).

Uruguay's football federation said it plans an appeal to FIFA before the team's round-of-16 game against Colombia on Saturday in R

A Golden Retriever that got separated from its owners during a camping trip in California's Tahoe National Forest was reunited with its family and doing well after apparently surviving on its own for nearly two years in the wilderness, the family said.

Erin and Nathan Braun were on a camping trip in October 2012 when the dog, named Murphy, went missing, according to the Los Angeles Times. The couple posted fliers and created a Facebook page about the disappearance to no avail.

Twenty months later, a camper at the French Meadows Reservoir, not more than five miles (eight km) from where the Brauns lost Murphy, spotted the pet and alerted the family, according to a Facebook post written b

This is Kathy Holick. She's a dance-aholic; and if you saw her boogie, you'd be sure to crack a smile.

Holick is a crossing guard in the Newtown, Connecticut, village of Sandy Hook. But directing traffic is just one of the ways she's is making an impact in her community.

According to the Hartford Courant, Holick -- who dances while directing traffic near Newtown High School -- has become a symbol of hope and positivity in Sandy Hook.

"She takes her responsibility seriously but has fun in the process," longtime Newtown resident John Bergquist told the Courant. "Everyone seems to love her and she has put smiles on many faces. If she was directing traffic in any town across the coun

Judging by the grandfather of Dutch soccer star Robin Van Persie, talent runs in the family.

After Van Persie scored a high-flying, last-minute header of a goal last Friday, the Internet exploded with pictures of people replicating the athlete's unique mid-air pose. Among those identifying with the nascent meme, called "Persieing," was Van Persie's 93-year-old grandfather.

In an interview with Dutch News Service Omroep Brabant, Van Persie's grandfather said that as a former gymnast, he was happy to strike the pose, though he admitted: "The falling part was fine but getting up was more difficult. Obviously, because it's not a position you get into every day."

For perspective, here's

A desperate and heart-wrenching Facebook post may have saved the life of one father in Logan County, West Virginia.

Last Tuesday, Gregory Vance was sitting on his porch with two friends as a violent storm swept through their neighborhood. The strong winds felled a large tree, and it landed on the three men, trapping them under the trunk, according to WOWK.

Vance's girlfriend and his two children, who were sheltered inside their home, frantically called out to him but received no answer, the outlet reported.

The family's cell phone service was down due to the storm and they don't have a landline. It seemed like they had no way to get help.

That's when Vance's 10-year-old daughter,

BOSTON (AP) — Ihor Lakatosh struggles to describe his life before the surgeries, when his severe burns went untreated for years in his native Ukraine, leaving him with one arm fused to his body, unable to walk and abandoned by his mother.

The 11-year-old boy, however, smiles widely and repeatedly makes the sign of the cross when he describes how he feels now, after a series of surgeries and physical therapy at a Boston charity hospital. "Thank you I can walk. Thank you I can walk. Thank you Lord, I can walk," he said recently through an interpreter.

Ihor returned to Boston early this year for a second round of procedures, and has been spending time showing off his newfound ability to w

The Texas multimillionaire art prankster who paid people to plant 10 Cadillacs in the Texas dirt in the 1970s as “a monument to the American Dream” has passed away.

Beyond the Route 66 landmark known as “Cadillac Ranch,” Stanley Marsh 3 also commissioned a series of 200 crazy street signs around his hometown of Amarillo. Examples: “Road Does Not End”; “I Have Traveled a Great Deal in Amarillo”; “I Don’t Suppose Anyone Has a Tomato?”; “It Begins With a Hanging”; “What Is a Village Without Village Idiots?”and “My Grandmother Can Whip Your Grandmother.”
