Authorities: Casey Kasem Was on Vacation, Not In Danger, When Found In Washington

Law enforcement officials have said that legendary radio host Casey Kasem was on vacation–not in danger–when they found him in Washington State this week.

According to the sheriff’s office in Kitsap County, west of Seattle, he was at a home where he and his wife, Jean, had been staying with longtime friends, Deputy Scott Wilson said.

On Wednesday, his daughter filed a missing persons report for the “America’s Top 40” host after the ailing 82 year-old went missing for a few days.

Kasem, who is suffering from Lewy body disease — a common cause of dementia, has been at the center of a conservator battle between his adult children and wife.

“We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my dad,” Kasem’s daughter, Kerri Kasem, wrote in a statement. “We are one step closer to bringing him home.”

Danny Deraney, a spokesman for three of Kasem’s children, said Thursday the family still had “grave concerns” about his health.
