LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles police say another car has been found over the side of a road where Charlie Sheen's Mercedes was earlier pulled from a steep ravine. Earlier in the day, police reported that a vehicle 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 four-door Mercedes 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.

Police spokesman Richard French says a photographer who was in the area reported the second vehicle, a Bentley, in the ravine shortly after 1:30 p.m.

French says nobody was in that car, which apparently was taken from a neighborhood adjoining Sheen's. French says three other cars in the area were broken into overnight, but investigators aren't sure if there's a connection.=

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