Los Angeles police say an SUV belonging to actor Charlie Sheen has been found crashed in a steep ravine near his Sherman Oaks home.

Officer Bruce Borihanh says officers got a 911 report at around 4 a.m. Friday that a car was down a cliff off Mulholland Drive. At about the same time, Sheen called to report that his Mercedes Benz SUV had been stolen.

TV reports show the car upside-down about 100 feet down a brush-covered ravine.

Borihanh says authorities searched the area on foot and by helicopter but found no one around and no evidence that anybody was in the car when it went over the edge.

He says the case is being treated as an auto theft.
