(CBS NEWS) – Actor Cory Monteith, who guest starred on an episode of Smallville and Supernatural and rose to fame on the musical series “Glee,” has died. He was 31.

Monteith was found dead inside his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada, around noon local time on Saturday, after he missed his check-out time, according to Deputy Police Chief Doug Lepard.

Monteith was dead when paramedics arrived on the scene, authorities said, noting that he had been “deceased for several hours.” Monteith was at room at the Pacific Rim Hotel earlier in the day with other people, police said, but it was believed he was alone at the time of his death. All indications point to no foul play.

The cause of death wasn’t immediately apparent, authorities said. Police will speak to family and friends. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.

It wasn’t immediately clear why Monteith was in Vancouver or who he had been with over the last several days. Monteith, who portrayed Finn Hudson on “Glee,” is from Canada and got his acting start in Vancouver.

Monteith’s death follows news that he had entered rehab this past spring. A rep confirmed in April that the actor had “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction.”
