Apparently the 82-year-old had been MIA for the past week, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement on Sunday:

    "Katherine Jackson is reportedly with family members. Late Saturday night, a different family member reported that he was unable to speak to 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."

Michael's 14-year-old daughter Paris Jackson Tweeted her concern for her grandmother early Sunday morning, expressing: "Yes, my grandmother is missing. I haven't spoken with her in a week [and] I want her home now."

Jackson's lawyer, Sandra Ribera, told CNN Katherine flew from Calabasas, Calif. to Albuquerque, New Mexico July 15 to attend a Jackson brothers concert with her eldest daughter, Rebbie, but her family "haven't been able to reach her for almost a week."

"They are told she's unavailable . . . I'm concerned that she's not safe," said Ribera, adding that Katherine "has never gone 24 hours without talking to her kids."

In other news, a doctor with ties to Dr. Conrad Murray reportedly tricked Katherine into believing he was treating her on behalf of her regular physician in the moments before she disappeared.

“Last weekend Katherine Jackson was getting ready to leave for a much anticipated road trip in the RV her son Michael bought for her to watch her sons perform,” Katherine's lawyer revealed to Celebuzz.

“Prior to her departure, a doctor was brought to her home and represented that he had been sent from the office of her longtime physician. Based on this representation, Mrs. Jackson agreed to meet with the doctor who subsequently ordered her to fly rather than drive to her sons’ concerts. Mrs. Jackson followed what she believed to be her doctor’s instructions," she said, adding: “Katherine Jackson’s longtime physician recently confirmed that his office did not send a doctor to Mrs. Jackson’s home last weekend before she left on her trip. It has further been discovered that the doctor that Katherine Jackson last saw has been publicly reprimanded by the California Medical Board for fraudulent activities and has ties to Dr. Conrad Murray.”

It's been a dramatic week for the Jackson family, who publicly criticized the executors of the late Michael's will, John Branca and John McClain, who they claim have been taking advantage of their mother and defrauding the family.
