The Associated Press reported that it received a series of emails from McCready on Thursday that Lee County Judge James Seals wrote to her lawyer, noting that once the boy is back in the state they will then pick up the pieces.

McCready's mother was given guardianship of the bout in 2007 and the singer is locked in a custody battle with her mom. She took the boy when she recently visitied her father's Florida home.

McCready, 36, told The AP that she is in Tennessee and will probably not be able to bring the boy back to Florida, as she cannot travel because she's nearly 7 months pregnant with twins.

The AP reported that if McCready doesn't return the boy to Florida she could be arrested.

According to the New York Daily News, a caseworker made an unannounced visit to McCready's father home on Tuesday and couldn't find the boy. The boy's whereabouts then became a matter for police to handle.

The court system in Florida is tragically corrupt. ... Maybe if I speak out and stand up for my child it will keep other parents from having to fight the same corruption to protect they're children, McCready told the paper.
