LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jermaine Jackson says that his mother is doing fine and is not missing as another relative reported to authorities.

Jackson posted a statement to Twitter Sunday evening saying that his mother Katherine is complying with doctor's orders to de-stress. The singer writes that the Jackson family matriarch is with his sister Rebbie and has been told to stay away from phones and electronics, but is not being blocked from speaking with anyone.

The statement came a day after a relative reported Katherine Jackson missing and her granddaughter Paris posted on Twitter that she hadn't spoken with her guardian in a week.

Authorities have said they believe Katherine Jackson is safe, but want to speak with her.
