Singer Mindy McCready is mourning the loss of boyfriend David Wilson, who was found dead Sunday in an apparent suicide.
Country star Mindy McCready broke her silence on "Good Morning America" today after being accused of abducting her 5-year-old son, Zander. McCready said she took Zander away because he "is in great danger, both physically and emotionally" with his legal guardian -- Mindy's mother, Gayle Inge.
Mindy continued, "What I did was to protect my child and there is not a person in the world that is ever gonna tell me that is wrong."
The missing five-year-old son of country singer Mindy McCready was found hiding in a closet with his mother in Arkansas, according to Deputy U.S. Marshall David Rahbany.
Zander and McCready were found in a vacant home in Heber Springs, Arkansas on Friday night. Officials believed that the singer, 36, and Zander might be with her boyfriend David Wilson, who resides in Heber Springs. A neighbor reported there were lights on at a vacant house, before marshals and police entered the home and found the mother and child.
