Casey Kasem, a famous radio personality in declining health, has been removed from the country and his whereabouts are unknown at this time.
According to WTAE in Pittsburgh, a judge has ordered an investigation into the location of Kasem after a lawyer for his wife expressed concern over where he was being treated.
Kasem, 82, suffers from advanced Parkinson's disease and has lost the ability to speak.
Of late, he has been in various medical facilities chosen by his wife, Jean Kasem, who continues to clash with her stepchildren.
They have complained on multiple occasions that they have been barred from seeing their father in accordance with an agreement they had reached with Jean.
In October, Kasem's kids asked a court for assistance in gaining access to their dad.
Earlier today, however, Craig Marcus - an attorney for Jean Kasem - told a judge that he has "no idea" where Kasem is and that he believes Kasem has been taken off U.S. soil, an admission that stunned two of Casey Kasem's daughters who were at the hearing.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy has appointed a doctor to look into Kasem's care and ordered a court-appointed lawyer to find out his whereabouts as soon as possible.
He also appointed daughter Kerri Kasemher as her father's temporary caretaker.
"We've been troubled for a long time," Kerri Kasem said after Monday's court hearing. "Justice has been served today."
