TORONTO (AP) -- The mystery of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's whereabouts has deepened, following reports that Ford did not enter the United States via Chicago last week, as expected.

His lawyer said last week that the mayor had left Toronto for rehab after another video surfaced that appeared to show Ford smoking a crack pipe. The lawyer, Dennis Morris, said Ford's plane was headed for Chicago.

But Roy Norton, the Consul General of Canada in Chicago, is telling The Globe and Mail that Ford voluntarily withdrew his application to enter the U.S. when he landed and was "not denied entry, per se."

Morris and Doug Ford, Rob's brother, declined to comment on the Globe's report, but insisted Tuesday to The Associated Press that the mayor is in rehab.

"The most important thing, everyone who is concerned if he's in rehab, the answer is yes. As for his whereabouts that's personal and that should stay with Rob," Doug Ford said.

"I've got nothing to add about the mayor. I can just tell you he's in rehab," Morris said.
