Former "Top 40" host Casey Kasem's whereabouts are currently unknown. A court ruling on May 12, 2014, granted his daughter, Kerri Kasem, temporary conservatorship for her 82-year-old father. The elder Kasem – who suffers from advanced Parkinson's Disease and can no longer talk – was in the care of his wife, Kerri's stepmother Jean Kasem, and has not been seen by any of his children for some time. During the trial, Jean's attorney, Craig Marcus, admitted neither he nor his client knew where the ailing Kasem was, but were under the assumption that he had been removed from the country.
Status: Kasem was found in Washington state three days after this story broke. He was with his wife visiting another couple at their home. When asked, they said they "were on vacation."
He died June 15, 2014 at 82 years old from complications of Lewy body dementia in Washington.

Actor and apparent drug addict Nick Stahl was reported missing by his estranged wife, Rose Stahl, in May of 2012. She became alarmed after she couldn't reach Stahl for nearly a week and expressed worry that he might have overdosed.
Within a few days after the story hit the media, Stahl emerged from a downtown Los Angeles crack house saying he was fine and that he'd gone into a 30-day inpatient rehab program. That wasn't the end of the drama, however; in June of 2012, Stahl went missing yet again. He apparently decided rehab wasn't for him, so he checked out of the facility and vanished.
Nick Stahl wasn't missing for long the second time around, either. He surfaced days after he bolted from the rehab facility, and his wife Rose reported that he was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and "in a good place."
Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson made headlines on July 21, 2012, when her nephew, Trent Jackson filed a missing persons report. Los Angeles police began investigating, and concerns began to mount about the 82-year-old Jackson's whereabouts.
Less than 24 hours later, police were able to contact Katherine Jackson - and as it turns out, she wasn't ever actually missing. She was hanging out with other family members in Arizona, enjoying the nice weather and even playing a game of Uno. So why did Trent Jackson file a missing person's report in the first place?
The situation may have been related to a Jackson family squabble involving some of Katherine Jackson's children. Several of them were apparently asking that Michael Jackson's estate executors resign. Some of the kids reportedly think that Jacko's will was "fake," and they believe the executors are manipulating things, stressing out Katherine and putting her health in jeopardy.

On February 25, 2010, Andrew Koenig's body was discovered by friends who were searching Vancouver's Stanley Park. Koenig's father, Walter, confirmed that his son had committed suicide by hanging himself in a heavily wooded area.
