Los Angeles police have been investigating a crash involving Charlie Sheen's luxury vehicle after thieves stole the automobile.
Sheen alerted authorities in the early hours of Friday morning after the Mercedes Sedan was taken from his LA home, a policeman confirmed.
The sports utility vehicle (SUV) was found several hours later, at the bottom of a steep cliff near the city's famous Mulholland Drive which is known for its sharp turns and winding roads.
According to reports, police searched the area by helicopter and on foot but found no evidence that there was anyone in the car when it went over the cliff's edge.
"They've looked all around the hillside. There's nobody in the car, nobody around [and no] evidence of anybody being around at the moment of impact," Officer Bruce Borihanh said.
"It's being treated as an auto theft investigation," he added.
Sheen, who stars in US sitcom 'Three and a Half Men' , is due to appear in court for allegedly threatening his wife, Brooke Mueller, with a knife during an argument on Christmas Day.
He was arrested on charges of second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief.
