Although it was believed a private viewing would be held for Heath Ledger on Friday, OK! has learned it may not take place after all.

A source close to the New York City funeral home, which will remain unnamed out of respect to Heath and his family, tells OK! that the late actor’s viewing is not on the schedule.

“There is nothing on the schedule,” the source says. “There are two other funerals on the schedule, but nothing else.”

The source adds that perhaps Heath’s family is just coming in “to make arrangements to fly the body elsewhere, maybe to a memorial in L.A. or Australia.”

Heath’s family was expected to arrive in New York Friday morning, but they have yet to be seen at the home, a source reveals to OK!.

“There haven’t been any signs of his family,” the source says.

A rep for the Oscar-nominated star announced on Friday that arrangements would remain private and there were no plans for public viewings.

"At this time, we will not be releasing any information," the rep states. "There are no plans for a public service."

Heath’s body was transported to the funeral home on Wednesday following an inconclusive autopsy after he was found dead in his SoHo apartment on Tuesday.
