If you start your thread with a relevant subject you may get better 
responses -- better bait, better fish :)

Your question is somewhat cryptic.

Is this an Asterisk issue or a system administration (bash/crontab) issue?

If you don't have a crontab for root, how are you executing your script?

The usual issues in running scripts are:

1) file and/or directory permissions and/or ownership.

2) PATH.

3) 'she-bang' errors.

4) different environment between shell and cron.

5) different environment between your user ID and the executing user ID.

6) Incorrect line endings -- editing the script/crontab on Windows (cr/lf) 
and copying it without conversion to Unix (lf).

None of which can be identified with the information provided.

The 'bash 5:command not found' snippet implies that something is wrong on 
the 5th line of your script.

Thanks in advance,
