We told you earlier this week that that legendary radio personality Casey Kasem was missing. The ailing icon has now apparently been found. I’ve always admired Casey Kasem and recall running his original “American Top 40″ show on the air in the early days of my radio career. Here are the details.

Here’s the latest from an AP article on aol.com:

“LOS ANGELES (AP) – Casey Kasem was located in Washington state on Thursday, three days after a Los Angeles judge expressed concerns about the ailing radio host’s whereabouts and safety.

Kasem’s condition was not immediately known, although his children rejoiced after days of uncertainty and said in a statement that locating their father was the first step in bringing him back to the Los Angeles area.

Santa Monica police Sgt. Mario Toti said Kasem was located by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday, hours after Kasem’s children filed a missing person’s report.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered adult protective services and court investigators to try to locate Kasem after an attorney for his wife told the court that the former “Top 40″ host was no longer in the United States but he did not know where he was.

Casey Kasem, 82, has been in poor health in recent years. Kerri Kasem’s court filings state her father is suffering from a form of dementia called Lewy Body Disease that had previously been incorrectly diagnosed as an advanced form of Parkinson’s disease.”
