California police has finally reached out to Jackson after a concerned relative contacted them. Katherine is has been the guardian of the singer’s kids — Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14, and ten-year-old Prince Michael 2 — since 2009. Paris tweeted yesterday that her grandmother was missing.

Paris took to Twitter: “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.”

The woman’s nephew Trent filed a missing person report. Her lawyer Sandra Ribera revealed that her client speaks to children at least every 24 hours.

She said: “The kids were trying to get hold of their grandmother. They are told she’s unavailable. I’m concerned that she’s not safe.”

However, one of her has recently announced via Twitter Friday that Katherine Jackson was fine and resting in Arizona.

“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,” Jermaine Jackson tweeted.

“This is our mother and her health is paramount. We are not inventing or plotting anything. We are following doctor’s advice. Period,” he added.

The mystery of Katherine Jackson’s missing is reportedly linked to a visit from her son’s former physician, Dr. Allan Metzger.

The doctor examined Jackson’s mom July 14 after being brought to her Calabasas home by someone close to the family, said Ribera.

According to CNN, “Metzger was a defense expert witness for Dr. Conrad Murray last year. Murray was subsequently convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death.”

14-year-old Paris twitted early Sunday: “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.”

The physician entered Jackson’s Calabasas, California, home “under false pretenses” by saying he was sent by her primary care doctor, Ribera said. “We came to find out that her doctor has no association with Dr. Metzger.”

Dr Metzer asked his patient to take a plane on a trip planned for the next day, instead of riding a RV driven by Trent Jackson, Jackson’s attorney revealed.

The next day the woman left with her oldest daughter to fly to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to attend a Jackson brothers concert two days later. However, Katherine hasn’t arrived at the concert.

When Katherine’s granddaughter Paris called her aunts Rebbie and Janet to find her grandmother, she was told she could not speak to her, Ribera said.

Being in despair, the teenager gave out her bodyguard’s phone number in her Twitter post, asking people to call the authorities if they saw her grandmother.

“The kids were trying to get a hold of their grandmother and they haven’t been able to reach her for almost a week,” Ribera said. “They are told she’s unavailable. I’m concerned that she’s not safe.”

The news of Jackson’s mom’s missing comes days after five of her kids — Rebbie, Janet, Jermaine, Tito and Randy — announced raised questions of Jacko’s estate, claiming the signature of his will is “fake, flawed and fraudulent.”
