Katherine Jackson: Alive and Well in Arizona

by at . Comments

It looks like the search for Katherine Jackson can be called off.

A few hours after police were told this family matriarch was missing, with many relatives - including 14-year old Paris Jackson - calling for information on the 82-year old's location, Jermaine Jackson posted a long message on Twitter that explained the situation.

"Let me put to bed today's nonsense: as I made clear some days ago, Mother is safe and well in Arizona with her daughter and our sister, Rebbie, resting up on doctor's advice, so it is beyond me how she can be reported 'missing,' the singer wrote.

Jermaine continued, putting to bed all claims of a controversy or cover-up:

"This incredulous claim was made for reasons best known to the adult/s who filed it but it seems no accident that it comes after we, the sons and daughters, put in place care-taking for our own mother, taking her to Arizona in line with doctor's advice following a check-up.

"Furthermore, it dismays me that such an alarmist 'missing person' report has caused unnecessary anxiety among Michael's children who will understandably react to what they misunderstand, hear or are told.

"No-one is being 'blocked' from speaking with Mother. She is merely an 82-year-old woman following doctor's orders to rest-up and de-stress, away from phones and computers. Everyone has been well aware of this within the family, but I would like to reiterate my reassurance to the outside world that Mother is fine. In the meantime, thank you for all your thoughts and concerns."
