At her mom's side in L.A. during her final days, the young woman was rushed to the hospital hours after her mother's lifeless body was discovered in the bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Feb. 11. And on the day of an emotional three-and-a-half hour funeral service for her mom Feb. 19 in Newark, NJ, Bobbi, who idolized her Grammy-winning mom, went missing.

"Bobby is now with the family and going through the grieving process just with them," a source explained to Us Weekly.
