The custody battler over country music star Mindy McCready's young son is heating up.
McCready's son Zander is officially a missing person after McCready missed a court-ordered deadline to return the five-year-old to his home in Florida. CNN is reporting that a Florida judge has signed an emergency order authorizing law enforcement officers to go and pick up the child from wherever he is now.
McCready's unwillingness to return her son to Florida has left her mother and step-father -- who are Zander's legal guardians -- asking for the public's help. In a statement to HLN, McCready's family urged their daughter and the reported father of her unborn twins, David Wilson, to return to Florida. "It is our hope that David and Mindy will comply w/ law enforcement and recognize this is in the best interest of Zander. If anyone has information concerning their whereabouts, please contact your local law enforcement."
McCready's ex-boyfriend and the father of Zander, Billy McKnight, told HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell he is worried about when he'll be able to see his son again. Knight said, "I don't know if she plans on bringing him back. She didn't lead me to believe she was going to."
McCready has not been charged with any crime.
