ST. PETERSBURG, Florida —  Authorities say they've located country singer Mindy McCready's 5-year-old son in Arkansas and taken him into custody.

Florida Department of Children and Families spokeswoman Terri Durdaller said in an email Friday night that her agency was working with Arkansas state officials to bring the boy, Zander, back to his legal guardian in Florida, his grandmother. Officials say he's safe and in good health.

Authorities say McCready took the boy during a recent visit to her father's Florida home. A judge there signed an order Thursday telling authorities to take the boy into custody and return him.

It's not yet clear whether the singer could face criminal charges.
