Casey Kasem's daughter to file a missing persons report WednesdayLOS ANGELES - Casey Kasem's daughter will file a missing persons report as soon as Wednesday morning, a representative for the family told TheWrap.
Kerri Kasem was granted conservatorship over her ailing father at a hearing on Monday. During that hearing, an attorney representing Kasem's wife, Jean, said that Kasem's whereabouts were unknown.
The full statement from Kasem's family is below:
“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. As soon as the family has any additional information, we will alert the media as soon as possible.”
The attorney, Craig Marcus, stated that Kasem may be “removed from the country,” while the Kasem family believes he may be at a Native American reservation in Washington.
Kasem has been in ill health as of late — he has been suffering from Lewy Body Disease, a form of dementia that is similar to Parkinson's Disease, Kerri Kasem's representative told TheWrap.
