    Forget Waldo. Where's Lindsay Lohan?

    While the Liz & Dick star's lawyer, Mark Heller, told Judge James Dabney that his client is currently "ensconced in the bosom" of the Morningside Recovery Center in Newport Beach, Calif., at a hearing this morning, that doesn't seem to be the case just yet.

    As for her whereabouts, Lohan was reportedly seen at a Fry's Electronics store in Fountain Valley, Calif., while her attorney was in court today claiming the actress was already in rehab.

    Following her little shopping excursion, Lohan eventually did go to the facility. However, a source informed E! News that she simply walked in and walked out.

    And now it seems as Lohan is looking to do more than walk.

    While her exact location at this moment remains unclear, another source told us that Lohan "has just now decided she doesn't want to go into rehab and is in a car back to LAX" and is planning to fly back to New York City.

    Sources speculate that Lohan could be on her way to Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., upon the request of Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White. However, the facility is not commenting.

    Meanwhile, Mary Helen Beatificato, the CEO at Morningside Recovery, is refuting reports that her facility isn't licensed to provide drug and alcohol treatment.

    "This is completely false," she said in a statement on Thursday. "This clinical facility is certified by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs as meeting all minimum standards of care and treatment."

    Of course, in Lohan's case, it now may not matter either way.
