Brian Gerber 41, a film producer was found dead by the Angeles Crest Highway Wednesday morning. Gerber has gone missing since Monday afternoon.
According to the Los Angeles Coroner's office that the body found has the same name and age as the film producer, who left behind a suicide note.
On Facebook, a post on Gerber's page, written under his name, said: “Our worst fears regarding Brian Gerber have been confirmed. Brian’s family thanks you for all the condolences, good thoughts, prayers and asks for your patience and understanding during this most difficult of times.”
An Amanda Copeland then posted on Gerber’s page that Gerber was found on the Angeles Crest, and there will be an announcement regarding a memorial service soon.
Earlier in the day, the Crescenta Valley Station of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department issued a statement that the body of a man in his early 40s had been found on the Angeles Crest highway after crashing his car.
That is the same location where an individual close to Gerber confirmed his car had been found.
Gerber’s family reported the 41-year-old as missing on Monday after finding the suicide note, prompting the Los Angeles Police Department’s Northeast Division to open an investigation.
The Wrap reported that the police had found his car, a 2004 Toyota Prius, on the highway. At the time it was unclear if the body was found on not.
The Coroner's office then confirmed the identity Wednesday afternoon of the body as one Brian Gerber. Trini Godoy is investigating for the coroner's office.
Gerber is survived by his wife, actress Arabella Fields, and two young sons.

Good news for Lilo, Lindsay will not be prosecuted for a burglary at a home where she had been a houseguest, prosecutors determined Tuesday.
LA police detectives presented a potential felony burglary case against her and 2 men who were reportedly at the Hollywood Hills home of a longtime friend after several items went missing earlier this month.
Prosecutors cited lack of evidence to prove Lohan was involved in the thefts. Stolen items taken were keys, cash, sunglasses and a credit card holder. The homeowner, businessman Sam Magid, is an acquaintance of Lohan and later told authorities that he did not want to pursue a case.
One of the men police interviewed was Lohan’s assistant, who told authorities that he, the actress and another man went into the home early Aug. 18. Some items were taken, but the assistant refused to say who stole them, according to a memo rejecting the charges.
Los Angeles police say their investigation into the thefts will continue.
Lohan remains on probation for a 2011 case in which she pleaded no contest to taking a $2,500 necklace without permission. After completing a strict counseling and morgue cleanup duty program implemented by a judge, Lohan no longer has to report to a judge, but she faces jail time if she is charged with another crime.
In recent months she has resumed acting, portraying Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie about the actress’ love affair with Richard Burton.
She also recently filmed The Canyons, a film by Less Than Zero author Bret Easton Ellis. That film has Lohan playing opposite James Deen, who is best known as an adult film star with thousands of movies to his credit.
Police in Santa Monica, Calif., continue to investigate a crash involving Lohan and her assistant on the Pacific Coast Highway earlier this year. Lohan was on her way to the set of the Lifetime film Liz and Dick when she slammed into the back of a dump truck and had to be briefly hospitalized.

According to TMZ, the night of the naked Vegas hotel party, Harry was hanging with two male friends after some boozing, the group decided to bring a bunch of chicks they had just met back to Harry's VIP suite at Encore.
That's when Harry's people dropped the ball. When the girls entered the room, the ladies were not asked to surrender their phones an epic failure considering Harry's well-documented wild side.
As the party fired up, several girls began to snap pics on their cell-phones and one of Harry's minders lackadaisically told the women, "awww, come on .. no photos."
After more boozing, the clothes came off and more photos were taken, in plain view of the handlers.

Nicki Minaj is the top candidate to become an American Idol judge, but it will be at the expense of Mariah Carey, who we're told hung up the phone on AI execs when she was told about it, according to TMZ.
The Expendables 2 is an old school, extremely entertaining action flick, that has plenty of laughs throughout the movie. There's a lot of fight scenes, explosions and gun fights which are really good for an action movie.

Its former co-host Ann Curry does a segment at the London Olympics with Matt Lauer.
For the first time since her emotional departure from "Today"in late June, Ann Curry appeared alongside her former co-host Matt Lauer on Thursday morning in a live broadcast from the London Olympics. She still hates Matt Lauer, that's what people say and it is really obvious. "Lauer said 'nice to see you' at the outset and 'good to see you' at the end. Curry returned neither sentiment."
If you watch the video of their encounter, you'll see she can barely make eye contact with Lauer when she says "good morning".
Curry holds resentment for her $25 million-per-year co-host for not standing up for her when NBC executives gave her the boot.
