Sage Stallone, the son of Sylvester Stallone, was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home Friday, a law enforcement source said.

Los Angeles police who were asked to make a welfare check at the home found the body, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.

No cause of death has been determined, and no other details were immediately available.

Sage Stallone was born in Los Angeles in 1976. He appeared as an actor in several movies, including some with his father, such as "Rocky V" and "Daylight."

He was 36.

[Updated at 4:54 a.m.: Stallone’s body was found by his housekeeper in his Studio City home this morning, said his lawyer, George Braunstein.

He said the cause of death was under investigation. “We don’t have any of the details,” Braunstein said. “He wasn’t depressed. He was thinking about getting married. He just had his whole life ahead of him.”

He was the son of Sylvester Stallone and his first wife, Sasha Ash. Sage had no children.]
