New details emerge of the death of Charles Levin, 70, who has appeared in television comedies such as "Seinfeld" and "Night Court".

The actor was found in a remote Oregon area on July 13 after being officially declared missing on July 8 after more than a week of absence.

Reports from the Oregon Grants Pass Public Safety Division reveal that Levin was lost on a remote mountain road in his orange fiat, which was found in a tree-fallen area about four miles from the nearest asphalt road. The police report said the terrain was so heavy that officers had to walk 1/4 of a mile from their emergency vehicle to reach the final location of the car, which saw the passenger's mirror cut off.

"I would have never thought that Fiat could make any headway on this stretch of road," the police report said, noting that the car was finally hopelessly glued to "mounds of earthwork." "
