Missing country star McCready and son found in Heber Springs

Posted By on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 3:58 PM

Mindy McCready, the country star whose album "10,000 Angels" sold two million copies in 1996 (video of her big hit "Guys Do It all The Time" seen above), was found hiding in the closet of a vacant summer home in Heber Springs over the weekend with her five-year-old son. McCready had apparently brought the boy to Arkansas in violation of a court order.

McCready has struggled with drug abuse, and was featured on the show "Celebrity Rehab" in 2010. Here's some rather disturbing video of McCready having a seizure while going through detox on the show.

Authorities said McCready took the boy from her parents home in Florida on November 29 and went to Tennessee. She was ordered by a judge to return the boy on December 1, but went to Heber Springs instead, with the FBI issuing a parental abduction alert in the case.

The boy is currently in foster care and will likely be transferred back to Florida soon. McCready, who is seven months pregnant with twins, may face criminal trespassing charges over being in the vacant home.
