Katherine Jackson, the mother of the pop superstars Michael and Janet Jackson, was reported missing to authorities on Saturday night, according to reports.
According to CNN, Jackson’s lawyer believed she had been traveling with Rebbie Jackson, her daughter. “I’m concerned that she’s not safe,” Sandra Ribera, the lawyer, said. Jackson is 82.
A police spokesman said that the missing persons report was filed by Trent Jackson, Katherine’s nephew. “The report will be referred to the Homicide/Missing Persons Unit, and they will be handling the investigation,” Lt. Josh Thai told RadarOnline.
Michael’s three children have lived with Katherine since their father’s death in 2009, Ribera said. Ribera added that Katherine had not contacted the grandchildren in a week.
Early Sunday morning, Paris Jackson, Michael’s 14-year-old daughter, said the same on Twitter, and asked for the public’s help in finding her grandmother.
Paris Jackson tweeted:
“yes , my grandmother is missing . i haven’t spoken with her in a week i want her home now” .
“if anybody sees my grandmother , please call the authorities or this number— (818)-876-0186 it’s the security number .. thank you so much”
