Prince's six living siblings haven't had time to properly mourn the late legend since he died at age 57 on Thursday, April 21.
Instead, they've been locked in a fierce battle over their brother's reported $250 million estate.
TMZ reports someone filed a missing persons report/ welfare check involving Prince's oldest half-brother, Alfred Jackson. The documents, filed on Friday, April 29, indicate Alfred is disabled and has been living in a V.A. facility near Minneapolis.
The person who filed the missing person report claims Alfred left the facility and has been unreachable since.
The problem, according to Alfred, is he isn't missing and was just in a meeting in Minnesota on Thursday, April 28 with his siblings—Tyka Nelson, Norrine and Sharon Nelson, Omarr Baker and John Nelson—about Prince's assets.
According to the new site, "Alfred believes the person who filed the report is a sibling who is trying to get him declared mentally incompetent so they can get power of attorney and a second vote in what is turning into a battle over Prince's estate."
Alfred and his lawyer, Frank Wheaton, had to go to the Minneapolis Police Dept. over the weekend to prove he was fully competent. He had to present proof that he's taking his medication and is of sound mind and body. As a result, the missing persons case is now closed, but the siblings still have a big fight ahead of them.
TMZ sources say the brothers and sisters believe Tyka, Prince's only full sibling, thinks she's entitled to more than the others when it comes to dividing Prince's assets. However, under Minnesota law all six siblings share equally.
As we previously reported, immediately after Prince died, Tyka filed legal papers to open a probate case.
In her court documents, she asked the judge to appoint a "special administrator." Under Minnesota law, a special administrator is someone who is appointed when there is no executor named in a will.
In the documents, obtained by TMZ, she says, "I do not know of the existence of a will and have no reason to believe that the decedent executed testamentary documents in any form."
Tyka also listed the people who are potential beneficiaries, all of whom are half brothers and sisters.
At a hearing on Wednesday, the judge also appointed Bremer Trust to serve as the administrator of Prince's estate.
Prince was familiar with the bank and trusted it. He did business there for years.
