Cassavetes told TMZ the teen's grandmother and aunty were helping Wahlquist keep her undercover. He stated: 

''We believe her family, grandmother Linda Massad and great aunt Jeanette Massad Anderson have been assisting in hiding Barbie and have also been served ... I don't know if she is OK or not, and I am extremely concerned for her well-being,"

Nick was said to have Barbie's custody from December 18 to January 8,  but Heather never revealed it.
