Katherine Jackson missing?

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies on Monday responded to reports of a fight at the home of Michael Jackson's mother, with officials saying the fight involved various family members.

Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Department, said deputies took a report but that no arrests were made.

"Lost Hills deputies responded to a family disturbance at the home of Katherine Jackson in the city of Calabasas. Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred, a battery. It involved members on the Jackson family," Whitmore said.

He did not name those involved.

The incident comes after some members of the Jackson family publicly said Katherine Jackson was missing and they were concerned about her welfare. The 82-year-old was reported missing Saturday by her family, sheriff's officials said.

Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson's daughter, posted on Twitter on Sunday: "Yes, my grandmother is missing. i haven't spoken with her in a week i want her home now."

 Jermaine Jackson later went on Twitter to say that his mother was fine.

 "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," he wrote.
