Trent Jackson's report that the family matriarch went missing is backed up by Michael Jackson's daughter Paris who said she has not spoken to her in a week.
Police confirmed that Michael Jackson's mother Katherine Jackson has been reported missing by a family member. Truth about her well-being is still blurry because on one side Michael's brother Jermaine Jackson said his mother is alright and is resting in Arizona but Katherine's granddaughter Paris and nephew Trent said she has been missing for the whole week.
Trent filed the missing person report on late Saturday, July 21 night with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department. Paris tweeted on Saturday morning, "yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now." She made a plea for anyone to call the authorities when they see her. She wrote, "The same doctor that testified on behalf of dr murray saying my father was a drug addict (a lie) is caring for my grandmother... just saying."
Jermaine said on Friday via Twitter, "I want to reassure everyone (inc all sudden medical experts) that Mother is fine but is resting up in AZ on the orders of a doctor, not us. This is our mother and her health is paramount. We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor's advice. Period. I thank the vast majority of you for your messages of love and support. The bullcrap of speculators and deflectors is just background noise."
Katherine's lawyer told CNN that she had never gone more than 24 hours without speaking to her grandchildren. She has been taking care of Paris, Prince and Blanket since Michael died in 2009.
Meanwhile the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department issued a statement, saying "Katherine Jackson is reportedly with family members. Late Saturday night, a different family member reported that he was unable to speak with her and is concerned for her well being. Deputies are continuing to make efforts to reach her and ask that she contact the Malibu / Lost Hills Sheriff's Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department."
