Ilya Salkind, a 63-year-old native of Mexico City, has reportedly gone missing. TMZ reports that Salkind had recently returned to his hometown to wrap up some loose ends involving an inheritance after the passing of his mother and was last seen leaving his estate to “handle some errands and get some dental work done.” He never returned and friends have filed a missing person report with Mexican police.

Salkind has had a near 40-year career working in Hollywood, but he is best known for acquiring the live action rights to the character Superman in 1974, which led to Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman. Salkind served as an executive producer on the first three films of that franchise.

If there’s any way that any of us can use our obsessive-compulsive comic book nerd powers to help find him, his friends have set up a website to help with the search.
