SELMA, Oregon (AP) – The remains found in a remote area of Oregon are believed to be of missing actor Charles Levin, who played numerous roles in television comedies such as "Seinfeld" and "Night Court."
Levin, 70, was reported missing from Grants Pass on July 8 for his son after he had not heard from his father for several days, The Oregonian / OregonLive reported.
He owned a 2012 orange Fiat and was "almost always in the company of his beige pug dog, Boo Boo Bear," Grants Pass public safety said last week in a press release seeking information on the whereabouts of Levin.
On Friday, the search and rescue teams reduced a search area based on an emergency ping of the cell phone. A resident located Levin's car on a remote and almost impassable road on Saturday. Inside the car, the soldiers found the remains of Levin's dog. The crews searching on steep and rugged terrain found the human remains.
There is a "high probability" that the remains are Levin's, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said on Sunday. The forensic doctor will make the final identification.
Levin's television credits include "Alice," "Hill Street Blues," "Doogie Howser, MD," "Night Court," and "Seinfeld." Levin also had roles in films, including "The Golden Child," "Annie Hall," and "This is Spinal Tap."
