Mindy Mccready - Mindy Mccready's Child Custody Case Postponed

Embattled country singer Mindy Mccready's custody case has been postponed for further review following a court hearing on Friday (16Dec11).
MCCready lost custody of her son Zander in 2007 following drug abuse and battery charges and her mother, Gayle Inge, was subsequently appointed his legal guardian.
The singer has been fighting to regain legal care of the five year old ever since, and she hit headlines earlier this month (Dec11) after failing to return the boy to his father Bill MCKnight's Florida home following a visit.
MCKnight filed a missing persons report and a judge ordered MCCready to return the child by a specified deadline. She defied the court ruling and it was left to U.S. Marshals to track her and Zander down to Arkansas. The boy was later placed in foster care.
MCCready, who is now six months pregnant with twins, appeared at an Arkansas courthouse in Cleburne County on Friday in a bid to solve the dispute with her mother and regain custody of Zander but a judge failed to make a decision.
The hearing was pushed back, potentially dashing MCCready's hopes of having her son home for Christmas (25Dec11).
However, the singer hasn't been too discouraged by the delay - her publicist Kat Wood tells Cnn, "Mindy and her family are pleased the courts are handling this case with care."
A new date for a hearing has not yet been scheduled.
