Mindy McCready Alleges Son Was Hit With Wooden Spoon


U.S. marshals found McCready and Zander at the home of McCready's boyfriend in Arkansas. Authorities have said they found McCready and her son hiding in a closet, while McCready said they were just sitting on a couch, "hanging out."

Zander is now staying with a foster family in Arkansas, but there is a silver lining for McCready. She said she was pleased with an Arkansas circuit court judge's custody ruling this week. Details of the ruling have been sealed.

"There were so many things that were good that happened," she told ABC News, "but everything is sealed."

McCready believes she'll have Zander back in time for Christmas. In the meantime, she's writing new music inspired by her experiences.

Hear McCready sing and learn more of the singer's story on the latest episode of "20/20."
