Radio legend Casey Kasem was found safe in Washington State, Santa Monica police told ABC News on May 14.

Sheriff’s deputies in Kitsap County, Wash., found the 82-year-old Kasem, ABC News reported.

“The family has grave concerns about his health and will do everything in their power to bring him back home,” Kasem’s daughter Kerri said in a statement. “We are grateful to the local authorities for finding my dad. We are one step closer to bringing him home.”

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy on Monday designated Kerri as her 82-year-old father’s temporary conservator and also ordered that his whereabouts be disclosed to her.

Her conservatorship efforts were opposed by stepmother Jean Kasem, who has maintained the former host of American Top 40 is being well cared for.

Kerri Kasem’s lawyer, Troy Martin, told the judge that he believed his client’s father was moved to a Native American reservation in Washington.

A model and radio personality, Kerri Kasem filed documents alleging that her stepmother “continues to cruelly prevent (Casey Kasem) from seeing his loved ones, including his children, brother and close friends.”

In a sworn declaration filed with the court, she says her father has Lewy body disease, which she says has symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease, but with a greater impact on the sufferer’s cognitive functions.

Kerri Kasem claims her stepmother previously moved her father to five different facilities to keep his children and other loved ones from visiting him. She said she and her sister Julie were able to locate and visit him May 6 at Berkley East Convalescent Hospital in Santa Monica, and that it was the first time she had seen him since December.
