Where is Casey Kasem? That's what a Los Angeles judge wants to know this week after learning that the 82-year-old's wife reportedly moved the bedridden radio personality from their home without his children's knowledge.

Kasem, former host of the "American Top 40," is suffering from an advanced staged of Parkinson's disease and can no longer speak, according to The Associated Press. In October, an ongoing feud between the entertainer's wife, Jean Kasem, and his kids from another marriage spilled over into the courts when the children asked for a conservatorship.

This week, Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered adult protective services and a court investigator to find out where Kasem is being treated after Jean Kasem's lawyer, Craig Marcus, said he didn't know where the star is but that he is "no longer in the United States," the AP reported.

"Your statements concern me even more," Murphy reportedly told Marcus before ordering the investigation to find the elderly Kasem.

An attorney representing Kasem's daughter, Kerri Kasem, told the court that the family believes the radio star may have been taken to an Indian reservation in Washington state, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Kerri Kasem asked for prayers in a Facebook post Monday, which has been shared more than 500 times as of Tuesday morning.

 


Kerri Kasem also accused Jean Kasem Monday of violating an agreement that prohibited her from moving the entertainer to a place his children could not see him, according to the AP. Kerri Kasem even accused her stepmother of elder abuse in a court filing last week.

"We've been troubled for a long time," Kerri Kasem told reporters after Monday's court hearing. "Justice has been served today."
