Kasem, 1989

Los Angeles (CNN) — Days after he left a nursing home, radio icon Casey Kasem was spotted in Washington state –but his exact location remains unclear.

Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies performed a welfare check Tuesday at an address provided by California Adult Protective Services, according to CNN affiliate KOMO.

Authorities found Casey and his wife visiting others at a home. The couple told deputies they were on vacation, sheriff’s department spokesman Scott Wilson told the affiliate.

After determining Casey was not in distress and was receiving appropriate care, the deputies left.

“We are grateful to local authorities for finding my Dad. We are one step closer to bringing him home,” daughter Kerri Kasem said in a statement Wednesday night.

But the statement added that Kasem’s exact location in Washington “is still being determined.” Kitsap County authorities have not released the address where they found Kasem.

“The Kasem family will do everything in their power to bring their father home,” Danny Deraney added.
