The DJ, 82, had been missing since around May 6 and was found after a judge ordered a court investigator to determine Kasem's location on Monday. His family filed a missing persons report Wednesday.

"We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my dad. We are one step closer to bringing him home," his daughter Kerri Kasem said in a statement.

Kasem's children say his wife, Jean Kasem, has kept them from seeing their father. Kasem has been living in medical facilities in Santa Monica of her choosing.

"We had a wonderful visit with him Tuesday at Berkley East Convalescent Hospital -- he was thriving there -- and she yanked him out of there after hours," Kasem's daughter Julie Kasem alleged to THR earlier this week, referring to her May 6 visit to the DJ. Kasem's brother Mouner Kasem added: "We're scared. ... Is he getting the care he needs?"

Kasem is worth a reported $80 million.
