Authorities in Oregon believe they have found the body of Charles Levin, an actor who appeared in television series including “Seinfeld” and “LA Law.” He was 70 years old.
Levin was in the process of moving when he went missing last week. Levin’s son in Los Angeles notified authorities of his disappearance last Monday.
On Friday, an emergency cell phone ping led authorities to search a remote area northeast of Selma, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said. They were unable to locate Levin.
A resident found Levin’s car on Saturday on a remote road. His dog was found in the vehicle and Levin’s body was located near the car, police said. “Based on the circumstances, there is a high probability that the remains are those of Charles Levin,” police said.
The medical examiner will make the final identification of the remains, police said. Levin appeared in one episode of “Seinfeld,” in 1993. He also appeared on shows such as “Alice,” “NYPD Blue,” and “Hill Street Blues.”
