McCready's son found in Arkansas

McCready was not arrested in Arkansas. She has been in a long-running custody dispute with her mother, who has custody of her son, Zander. McCready had said she was in Tennessee and could not return to Florida by a court-imposed Thursday afternoon deadline because she was seven months pregnant with twins.
Florida authorities are int ouch with Arkansas officials to bring Zander back to Florida, according to an Associated Press story.
