Casey Kasem: Missing Persons Report Expected Wednesday
A missing persons report for Casey Kasem is expected to be filed Wednesday morning, which would allow federal and local law enforcement to aid in the search for the missing radio DJ.
"Adult Protective Services, the courts and family are currently looking for Mr. Kasem," Kasem's rep said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "As soon as the paperwork for the conservatorship is done, Kerri Kasem will file a missing persons report, which should be done by tomorrow morning, thereby allowing the FBI and local law enforcement to get involved. As soon as the family has any additional information, we will alert the media as soon as possible."
The legendary DJ disappeared from a Santa Monica hospital around May 6. On Monday, a judge ordered a court investigator to determine the location of Kasem, 82, who suffers from Lewy body disease.
Kasem is no longer able to talk and has been in medical facilities chosen by his wife, Jean Kasem. His children have complained that their stepmother has prevented them from seeing their father.
Kasem's daughter Kerri Kasem had sought a temporary conservatorship and was appointed her father's temporary caretaker on Monday. Her attorney, Troy Martin, said the family believes the entertainer has been taken to an Indian reservation in Washington state.
"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. Kasem's brother Mouner Kasem added: "We're scared. ... Is he getting the care he needs?"
The American Top 40 radio DJ is worth a reported $80 million.
