The actor, 70, was reported missing from Grants Pass, Oregon on July 8 by his son after he hadn't heard from his father for several days, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

He owned an orange 2012 Fiat and was "almost always in the company of his fawn-coloured pug dog Boo Boo Bear."

Grants Pass public safety said in a news release last week they were seeking information about Levin's whereabouts.

 

 

 

 

 

On Friday, search and rescue crews narrowed down a search area based on an emergency mobile phone ping.

A resident located Levin's car in a remote and almost impassable road on the weekend.

Inside the car, troopers found the remains of Levin's dog.

Crews searching steep and rugged terrain then found the human remains. There is a "high probability" the remains are those of Levin, The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety said.

The medical examiner will make the final identification.

Levin's TV credits also include Alice, Doogie Howser, M.D.

He also appeared in movies including The Golden Child, Annie Hall and This is Spinal Tap.
