LOS ANGELES (AP) - A documentary producer who worked with Leonardo DiCaprio on the environmental film “The 11th Hour” has been found dead.

Coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter says Brian Gerber’s body was recovered Wednesday morning after being found near a vehicle that plunged from a mountain highway northeast of Los Angeles.

Winter says his death is being investigated as a possible suicide. Gerber had been reported missing over the weekend.

The 41-year-old’s film credits include “The Dungeon Masters,” which focused on three Dungeons and Dragons game devotees. According to a biography on his company’s website, Gerber worked with the band R.E.M. and has worked on several music documentaries.


He also co-founded a series of conferences titled “Digital Hollywood.”

He is survived by his wife, actress Arabella Field and two young sons.
