Missing Casey Kasem located, but still not home

(Yahoo!) - Mr. Radio has been found.

Casey Kasem, who went missing amid a family battle over his welfare, has been located in Washington State, but the turmoil is far from over.

"We have received confirmation that Casey Kasem has been found," a spokesperson for his daughter, Kerri Kasem, told "The Insider With Yahoo." "The family has grave concerns about his health and will do everything in their power to bring him back home."

That's the thing: The ailing Top 40 radio host — who, at 82, suffers from Lewy body disease, a common cause of dementia — still isn't home. More than a week after he was removed from his Los Angeles medical facility, authorities did a welfare check at a Kitsap County, Washington, address given to them by California Adult Protective Services on Wednesday, according to ABC News. Casey, who's reportedly worth $80 million, was found inside with his wife, Jean. When questioned by authorities, he said he was on vacation and was cognizant of his whereabouts — though it's important to note that Casey is no longer able to speak due to his medical condition. Spokesperson Deputy Scott Wilson said, "At this time, the Kitsap County Sheriff's Department does not believe this is a police issue."

The battle over Casey is a long and complicated one. His daughter Kerri — who was granted temporary conservatorship of her father on Monday, despite objections from Jean's lawyer — has long said that her stepmother, a 60-year-old actress who appeared on "Cheers," has been blocking her and her siblings from seeing their father. In court earlier this week, the judge ordered an investigation into Casey's whereabouts after it was suggested Jean had him taken out of the country.
