Mindy McCready: 'I Did Not Steal My Child!' Mindy McCready: 'I Did Not Steal My Child!'

Mindy McCready and her 5-year-old son, Zander, have been found by police after being reported missing on Tuesday.

On Friday night, the country singer, 36, and her son — who she does not have custody of — were reportedly found in Heber Springs, Ark., in a home belonging to the man believed to be her boyfriend, local authorities told CNN.

“The child appeared to be in good condition when we found him … he was in the closet with his mother,” eastern Arkansas’s chief deputy U.S. Marshal, Davuid Rahbany told CNN.

Zander is currently in the custody of the Arkansas Division of Children and Family Services. The organization is expected to arrange for the child to be returned to Gayle Inge (McCready’s mother) and her husband, Michael Inge, who have legal custody of the boy and live in Florida, CNN reported.

As previously reported on Access Hollywood.com, on Wednesday, McCready responded first to Access Hollywood, following a report she and her son were missing.

“I am working with lawyers to try to get all this straightened out,” she told Access Hollywood in a previous e-mail. “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.”

According to the Associated Press, however, the Department of Children and Families said a missing persons report was filed in Florida on Tuesday.

It was also revealed on Wednesday evening that McCready is expecting twins.

A rep for the embattled singer confirmed the news to People, and, according to the Associated Press, which spoke to McCraedy on Wednesday, she is 7 months pregnant.

Neither report listed details of who the father of the babies is.
