Casey Kasem found in Washington State

Radio icon found hours after his children filed missing person's report

As first reported by The New York Daily News, Casey Kasem has been found in Washington State.  Police traced the former radio show host hours after his adult children filed a missing person's report Wednesday.

It's believed Kasem's wife moved him out of his Santa Monica nursing home last week.  "Kidnapped ..." is how one of his daughter's put it.

A California judge ordered an immediate investigation after the 82-year-old was reported missing.  Kasem is ailing with a disease similar to advanced Parkinson's.  Daughter Kerri was also awarded "medical conservatorship" of her father.

The radio icon's wife and children (from another marriage) have been entrenched in legal battles over visitation and his care for a some time.
