HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. -

Several days after country singer Mindy McCready went missing with her five-year-old son, authorities in Arkansas have found them safe Friday.

WZVN-TV in Fort Meyers, Florida reports on their Web site that Zander is in the custody Friday night of U.S. Marshals and Arkansas law enforcement.

McCready was found hiding in a closet with him at a home in Heber Springs.

She took her son Tuesday during visit at her father's Cape Coral, Florida home, violating a custody arrangement.

She does have visitation rights, but her mother has custody of the boy.

By Thursday, it was believed that the two had traveled to Tennessee, while a judge signed an order allowing authorities to take the boy into custody and return him.

McCready had told the media she was safe, but that she would not bring Zander back to Florida because she is seven months pregnant with twins.

It's unclear where the boy will be taken.
