The 36-year-old singer, who has been battling personal problems including attempted suicide over the last few years, has been battling the court system over custody of her son. She currently does not have legal custody, but is allowed to visit the boy.

McCready was last seen Tuesday while picking up Zander from her dad's house in Cape Coral, Florida.

In response to the missing person's report, the singer posted the following message on Facebook Tuesday night: "My son is not missing" and "police established that this afternoon via Skype."

She added, "I have been fighting the Florida court system to protect my son, and bring him home. Please do not worry."

McCready has been ordered to return Zander by 5pm tomorrow.
