CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities say country singer Mindy McCready is missing with her 5-year-old son, and a judge has given her until Thursday to return the boy.
   
The Department of Children and Families says a missing persons report was filed Tuesday night with Cape Coral police after McCready took her son Zander from her father's home. McCready doesn't have custody; her mother does. The singer was allowed to visit Zander at her father's home.
   
DCF spokesman Terry Field told The Associated Press the agency requested an emergency pickup order, and a judge said McCready must return the boy by 5 p.m. Thursday.
   
Since topping the country charts in the mid-1990s with her music, the 36-year-old singer's troubled life has been filled with domestic abuse, drug and DUI arrests and a suicide attempt.
