Producer Ilya Salkind, whose screen credits include the 'Superman' movie franchise, is thought to have gone missing in his native Mexico, after failing to return to his dentist's office, according to NBC Los Angeles. Salkind, 63, was last heard from by associates in Los Angeles on Sunday evening, January 30th, and concerned friends have since set up a website with information.His friends believe that on Monday, January 31, Salkind left the family home in Tepozlan, Mexico, to run errands and see the dentist. When he failed to return for a follow-up visit with his dentist, the caretakers at his home notified local authorities. "Ilya's friends, business partners, lawyers and dentist are all concerned having not heard from Ilya on Monday or Tuesday of this week," notes the website.

Tepozlan is located about an hour south of Mexico City. The next largest city is Cuernavaca to the south.
