Just how film producer Ilya Salkind came to be in a hospital in Mexico earlier this week is not yet known, however friends and family of the 63-year-old are now relieved to know their loved one--reported missing on Tuesday--has been located. A friend of Salkind would only confirm to NBCLA that the producer had been located, and that details would be made public shortly via the website set up to help encourage the public's involvement in the case.

"Ilya Salkind's been found" remains the only information as of this morning posted on the site.

Salkind was reported missing when he did not return to his dentist's office in his native Mexico for a follow-up visit. His last contact with associates in Los Angeles had been Sunday night, prompting worry about his well-being. He was thought to have left his home near Mexico City Monday to run errands.
