Katherine Jackson not missing: Michael's mom at Arizona treatment center
Here's what happened:
Late on Saturday, a nephew filed a missing persons report with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department after he was allegedly unable to contact Jackson for more than a week, reports TMZ.
TMZ also reports that Jackson may have recently suffered a stroke. The family has been feuding about the executors of Michael's estate.

Global Grind reports that Katherine is in fact in treatment at an Arizona hospital, a claim made by Jermaine Jackson earlier in the week.
The Sheriff's department concurs, releasing this statment early Sunday morning:
"Katherine Jackson is reportedly with family members."
