You'll need some further information or assumptions.

For example, can you assume that AB is a tangent to the circle at B? Even if you can, you'll need some further information.

Yes, it seems that result isn't unique with given inputs.
(See pictures.)

In spite of that, it can be shown that $\displaystyle \triangle ABD \sim \triangle ABC$, $\displaystyle AC=18 cm$, $\displaystyle DC=10 cm$ and $\displaystyle \frac{BC}{BD}=\frac{3}{2}$.
To find $\displaystyle r$ (using the law of sines, for example), it is necessary to provide more data.
