Concern for the well-being of Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 18, heightened after Houston's funeral Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J.

According to The Daily Beast, Bobbi Kristina disappeared and the family was looking for her before Houston's burial Sunday at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J.

Whitney Houston's godmother Darlene Love denied rumors that Bobbi Kristina had been missing.

"Not true. No true," Love told Access Hollywood Live Monday. "She was with us and she was with the family the whole time… She's been with the family these last couple of days. We all know where she is, she's not missing."

Reports have also suggested that Bobbi Kristina was using drugs and that her family wanted her to go to rehab. Houston's good friend BeBe Winans, who sang and spoke at the funeral, said he was unaware of talks about Bobbi Kristina receiving treatment for drug use.

"I don't know anything about rehab," Winans said. "I can tell you from being around her, pretty much all her life, and at the same time being around her in this dark valley, she's doing wonderful. She's doing wonderful."

Winans added that he understood Bobbi Kristina's pain and offered his support. "So wherever she needs to walk, the positive thing is that she's not walking alone. We will be by her side," he said.

Winans said that Houston supported Bobbi Kristina having a good relationship with her father, R&B singer Bobby Brown, who left the funeral after 15 minutes, citing problems with his seating arrangements.

"Even when they decided to divorce… she told Bobbi Kristina, 'He will always be your father. You will need your father,'" Winans said. "And no matter what happens, she will have her father because Whitney's family understands that."

Love said the family did not yet know where Bobbi Kristina would live. "I have a feeling that she's going to end up being close to the family," she said. "Most of… Whitney's family is still in New Jersey, and that's where Whitney was off and on… I don't know where she's going to end up."
