Police in Florida are searching for country singer Mindy McCready and her 5-year-old son after a missing persons report was filed on Tuesday. McCready, who does not have legal custody of her child, was last seen with her son on Tuesday night.
In an email to Access Hollywood, McCready says that she didn’t steal her child.
“I am working with lawyers to try to get all this straightened out. I did not steal my child, as it would be impossible for me to kidnap what already belongs to me! There never was any missing persons report and never an Amber Alert.”
But the Department of Children and Families says otherwise. The Associated Press reports that a judge ordered McCready to return Zander by Thursday.
McCready posted on Facebook:
“My son is not missing… police established that this afternoon via Skype. I have been fighting the Florida court system to protect my son, and bring him home. Please do not worry.”
McCready has had her share of personal problems in the last few years. People reports that McCready has battled addiction for several years and attempted suicide in 2010.
After appearing on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, McCready told Access Hollywood:
“Dr. Drew in giving me a diagnosis, diagnosed me as a person who has co-dependency. The new age term is a ‘love addict.’ It leads you into the wrong relationships and you go from one horrible relationship to another. Then I started drinking too much.”
Do you think Mindy McCready will return Zander by tomorrow’s deadline?
