Authorities searching for radio great Casey Kasem

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- He shot to fame with his radio countdown. Now Casey Kasem is a missing person.

The 82-year-old has Parkinson's disease. Kasem's children say their stepmother removed their father from a medical facility in Los Angeles without telling them.

A judge has ordered an investigation into his whereabouts, and appointed his daughter, Kerri Kasem, caretaker of her father. She says her stepmom hasn't let the family see their father for almost a year.

"We want people to call the police," Kerri Kasem said. "Help us find our dad. It's so important. He's very ill. He should not be moved."

A lawyer for Kasem's wife, Jean, says he doesn't know where Casey Kasem is, but believes he's out of the country.
