LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Authorities say Casey Kasem has been located in Washington state three days after a Los Angeles judge expressed concerns about the ailing radio host's whereabouts and safety.

Santa Monica Police Department Sgt. Mario Toti said Kasem was located a few hours after his children filed a missing person's report on Wednesday. A representative for three of Kasem's children said the report was filed after a court issued letters appointing his daughter Kerri as his temporary conservator.

Toti said Kasem was found by the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office, which could not immediately be reached for comment.

On Monday, Superior Court Judge Daniel Murphy ordered adult protective services and a court investigator to locate Kasem after an attorney for his wife said he did not know the former "Top 40" host's whereabouts.
