Police in Florida are searching for country singer and former “Celebrity Rehab” star, Mindy McCready, after she allegedly took her son from his father’s home without permission.
Update!: Mindy spoke with Access Hollywood, claiming, “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.”
The singer has been battling her mother, Gayle Inge, for custody of her five-year-old son Xander ever since her release from jail where she served time for probation violation in 2008.
Xander was at the home of his father, Bill MCKnight, in Cape Coral when Mindy took off with the child.
Family members have filed a missing person report, and officials for the Department of Children and Families held an emergency hearing on Tuesday afternoon.
The judge ruled McCready, who turns 36 today, must have her son back home by Thursday or will face arrest.
The scariest part of this abduction is that Mindy has attempted suicide multiple times in the past.
