Casey Kasem Found in Washington State
UPDATED: "We are one step closer to bringing him home," the DJ's daughter Kerri Kasem said.
Casey Kasem has been found in Washington state, his rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.
"The family has grave concerns about his medical care," the rep said in a statement. "The Kasem family will do everything in their power to bring their father home."
"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.
