Kasem’s daughter blames his longtime wife Jean for snatching their father.

"I believe my father's wife fled the country with my Dad, Kerri Kasem said.

A court named Kerri as her father’s temporary conservator this week, she thinks that led Jean Kasem to hide her husband.

Kasem’s brother Mouner told CNN. "We have no knowledge of how he is, what he's doing, if he's better, if he's worse, and we're scared that we'll never see him again."

An attorney appearing on behalf of Jean Kasem at yesterday’s hearing argued she had the right to move her husband if she wished.

He stunned the family when told them he thought Kasem had been taken “out of the country.”

The family thinks the voice of Shaggy from Scooby Doo and host of "American Top 40" and "Casey's Top 40,  is on an Indian reservation in Washington state.

The longtime radio host has suffered from Parkinson’s disease for years. The disease has robbed Kasem of the ability to speak and kept him in numerous medical facilities for the past several years.

It’s believed he only has a few months to live.
