The body of missing Seinfeld actor Charles Levin has allegedly been found in Oregon.

The 70-year-old was reported missing by his son on July 8 from the city of Grants Pass after he hadn’t been heard from for several days.

Police announced on Saturday that they had found human remains in a remote, mountainous area.

There’s a ‘high probability’ that the remains belong to Charles, they said.

There is ‘no concern of foul play’ surrounding the actor’s alleged death, officials told the New York Daily News.

A medical examiner will make the final identification.

‘Based on the circumstances, there is a high probability that the remains are those of Charles Levin,’ police said.

The remains were found in an area outside Selma, a town southwest of Grants Pass, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety.

Search and rescue crews had narrowed down a search area based on an emergency cellphone ping.

A local found the 70-year-old actor’s orange 2012 Fiat on a ‘very remote and almost impassable road.’ His car was reportedly ‘off the road and disabled due to the terrain’.

Levin’s pet pug, Boo Boo Bear, was found dead inside his car, and, after a search, human remains were soon found nearby.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Charles’ rep and the police for comment. 

Levin is best known for his roles in the television shows Seinfeld and Night Court.

He appeared in one episode of Seinfeld, ‘The Bris’, in 1993, in which he played the part of the mohel who cut off a part of Jerry’s finger.

Charles also starred in Annie Hall, The Golden Child and This is Spinal Tap. He moved to Grants Pass after retiring from acting in the late 1990s.
