Saturday, Oregon State Police found human remains that may be 70-year-old Charles Levin along an "almost impassible road."

On Friday, Grants Pass Dept. of Public Safety and Josephine County Search and Rescue narrowed down a search area to Selma in an effort to find missing actor Charles Levin, 70, and his dog Boo Bear.

Crews were unable to locate Levin on Friday in the remote area northeast of Selma. However, Saturday night, an Illinois Valley resident called law enforcement saying Levin's car was "in a very remote and almost impassible road" according to GPDPS. Oregon State Police responded to the area and the caller led them to the vehicle.

OSP found Boo Bear deceased in the car, but did not find Levin immediately. Police and Search and Rescue responded to the area shortly after. Hours of searching the steep and rugged terrain led to crews locating human remains nearby that GPDPS believes may be Levin.

GPDPS says a Medical Examiner will have to complete the final identification.
