SELMA, OR. (THECOUNT) — Actor Charles Levin, who appeared on such hit TV shows as “Seinfeld” and “Night Court,” was identified as the body found Sunday in Oregon, according to reports.
Levin, 70, was reported missing from Grants Pass on July 8 by his son after he hadn’t heard from his father for several days, local news outlets reported.
Levin owned an orange 2012 Fiat and was “almost always in the company of his fawn-colored pug dog, Boo Boo Bear,” Grants Pass public safety said in a news release last week seeking information about Levin’s whereabouts.
On Friday, search and rescue crews narrowed down a search area based on an emergency cellphone ping. A resident located Levin’s car in a remote and almost impassable road Saturday. Inside the car, troopers found the remains of Levin’s dog. Crews searching steep and rugged terrain found the human remains, reports WDBJ7.
There is a “high probability” the remains are those of Levin, The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said Sunday. The medical examiner will make the final identification.
