Casey Kasem Found In Washington State
Casey Kasem has been found in Washington State. Police reportedly found him after his daughter Kerri filed a missing persons report. The legendary radio personality was considered missing on Monday when a judge ordered a court-appointed attorney to investigate his whereabouts, and also appointed a doctor to evaluate his care.
The former “American Top 40″ host suffers from advanced Parkinson’s Disease, cannot speak, and has been in and out of different medical facilities. A rep for the family said in statement: “The family has grave concerns about his medical care. The Kasem family will do everything in their power to bring their father home.”
Kasem’s wife Jean and his children from a prior marriage have spent much of the past year warring over his care, with Kasem’s adult kids alleging they’ve been forbidden to see their father in a situation that amounts to elder abuse. Gossip Cop will update as more details emerge.
