Country singer Mindy McCready and her 5-year-old son, Zander, were found by police Friday night after going missing for three days, CNN reports.
Mother and son were found in a home in Heber Springs, Ark., believed to belong to McCready's boyfriend, and Zander appeared to be in "good condition," David Rahbany, the chief deputy U.S. Marshal in eastern Arkansas, said.
Mindy McCready won't return her son to Florida despite judge's order
Though a judge had issued an order for McCready, 36, to return her son earlier this week to Florida or she would be subject to arrest, she has not been charged with any crime, and Rahbany said it is unclear whether she would face any charges.
McCready, who is seven months pregnant with twins, does not have custody of the child and reportedly took Zander from her parents' home on Tuesday. McCready's mother was awarded guardianship of Zander in 2007, but the singer told the AP that she and her mother have had an ongoing custody battle in Florida over Zander, and alleges that her son was abused while under her mother's watch; her mother, Gayle Inge, denies the abuse allegations.

Zander has been placed in the custody of the Arkansas Division of Children and Family Services and will be taken back to Inge, Rahbany said.
"We feel sorrow for Zander because he's traumatized, and for Mindy. We just hope she does the right thing from here on out and that this is a wake-up call for her," Inge and her husband, Michael Inge, said in a statement.
