The KITSAP COUNTY Sheriff's Department said that KASEM was at an undisclosed address provided by CALIFORNIA Adult Protective Services with his wife JEAN and is aware of where he is.
A statement from DANNY DERANEY, a representative of KASEM's children, said, "We have received confirmation that CASEY KASEM has been found in WASHINGTON State. The family has grave concerns about his medical care. The KASEM family will do everything in their power to bring their father home."

We are one step closer to bringing him home."

The news is the latest twist in the battle between the KASEM children and KASEM's wife over access to the ailing 82-year-old former "AMERICAN TOP 40" host, who suffers from advanced Parkinson's disease and has lost his ability to speak.
