LOS ANGELES — Authorities in Los Angeles say they have located Katherine Jackson and say that she is safe and with a family member.

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Pope says investigators continue to speak with Jackson’s relatives and gather more information about her whereabouts.

A relative reported the Jackson family matriarch missing on Saturday night, but her son Jermaine said Sunday evening she was with sister Rebbie in Arizona.

Pope says he does not have details on her exact whereabouts and that investigators are working on the case.

Jermaine Jackson wrote in a statement that his mother was following doctor’s orders to rest and stay away from the phone.

Katherine Jackson is the guardian of the children of her late son Michael and had not spoken with them in a week.
