ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (AP) — An Arkansas sheriff said that country singer Mindy McCready didn't have permission to be in the unoccupied summer home where she was found Friday evening with her 5-year-old son. Authorities continue to investigate the matter.

Cleburne County Sheriff Marty Moss said in a news release Saturday that authorities located McCready after receiving a report of "possible occupants in a summer home that was supposed to be unoccupied."

Moss said officers entered the home and found McCready and her son in a closet. A man, David Wilson, was also in the residence. Moss said neither had permission to be in the residence. Neither was arrested at the time.

The boy, Zander, was taken into custody by the Arkansas Department of Human Services consistent with a Florida judge's order that the boy be returned to that state. The child had been in the custody of his legal guardian, McCready's mother. McCready didn't respond to emails late Friday.
