GRANTS PASS, Ore. —

UPDATE: Searchers may have found Charles Levin late Friday night, according to the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety (GPDPS). 

Levin was last heard from on June 28th when he made a phone call indicating that he was lost in or near Cave Junction. This morning police sent out a press release saying they found Levin's car — as well as a body they believe to be his.

Searchers found Levin's car off the roadway in a very remote and what police call an "almost impassible" road. The car was unusable. Inside the car, Levin's dog was discovered dead. Levin was not in the car or immediately around it.

Josephine County Search and Rescue came to the area and began searching again along with the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety. After several hours, police say they found human remains. Based on the circumstances, police say there is a high probability that the remains belong to Charles Levin.

The body is going to the medical examiner for final identification.
