LOS ANGELES, May 12 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered Casey Kasem's wife reveal the whereabouts of the radio legend to his daughter, who said she's being kept from seeing her ailing father.

Judge Daniel Murphy granted Casey Kasem's daughter, Kerri Kasem, temporary conservatorship over her father Monday after she argued her stepmother, Jean Kasem, prevented her and her sister from visiting their father.

Casey Kasem has been hospitalized with Lewy Body Disease, which features symptoms similar to Parkinson's Disease.

Kerri Kasem said Jean Kasem moved her father to five different facilities to keep his family from visiting him.

Murphy told Jean Kasem's lawyer, Craig Marcus, he was concerned Marcus didn't even know of the former radio personality's location.

"This is of grave concern to the court," Murphy said. "I'm concerned for the safety, health and well-being of Mr. Kasem."

Marcus said Casey Kasem had been taken out of the country, where Murphy doesn't have jurisdiction. Kerri Kasem's lawyer, Troy Martin, said he believes Casey Kasem was taken to an Indian reservation in Washington.
