Where in the World is Casey Kasem? (Update)

This isn’t like “Where’s Waldo” or “Where’s Rob Ford.”  This is something far more serious.

The radio legend–who hasn’t heard him do American Top 40 at some point in their lives?–has been suffering from advanced Parkinson’s for years and is essentially incapacitated.  His wife, Jean, has cut him off from all contact with his kids, leading to a battle over his car and his not-insubstantial estate.

Now a judge has ordered an investigation into Kasem’s whereabouts.  His kids say that Jean moved him from Los Angeles County without their knowledge, perhaps to an Indian reservation up on Washington.

The full story at ABC News.

UPDATE:  Word came late Wednesday (May 14) that Casey had been found in Washington State.
