Radio host Casey Kasem is missing amid a family feud.
His wife may be hiding Kasem in an Indian reservation.
FOX News reported:
The daughter of missing longtime radio host Casey Kasem made a public plea to her stepmother Tuesday, telling Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren she will not contest any claim to her father’s estate if Jean Kasem would “give us our dad back.”
A judge on Monday ordered an investigation into the whereabouts of Kasem after an attorney for the ailing radio personality’s wife said the former “Top 40” host had been removed from Los Angeles without his children’s knowledge. Kasem, 82, suffers from Lewy Body disease, according to a rep for his family, can no longer speak and has been in various medical facilities chosen by his wife.
Kasem’s children have complained that they have been unable to see their father in accordance with an agreement with their stepmother. 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.
Late Tuesday, the family said it would file a missing persons report.
“Adult Protective Services, the courts and family are currently looking for Mr. Kasem. As soon as the paper work 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,” the statement said. “As soon as the family has any additional information, we will alert the media as soon as possible.”
Kerri Kasem said Tuesday on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” that she last saw her father on May 6, and he had a smile on his face for their whole visit.
