(CNN) — Actor Dimitri Diatchenko, best known as Uri on “Chernobyl Diaries,” was found dead in his home in Daytona Beach, Florida, police say.

Diatchenko, 52, was discovered after co-workers who were worried they hadn’t heard from him in a few days called police.

One co-worker told police he last heard from Diatchenko via text message on April 19. Diatchenko recently had suffered a work-related injury and was recovering, according to the police report.

The co-worker told police Diatchenko was electrocuted on April 13 while on the job and was taking time off, the police report said.

Police entered Diatchenko’s residence on Wednesday and found him unresponsive, kneeling with his face down in a reclining chair in his living room, according to the police report.

Police say there were no signs of foul play. The cause of death has yet to be determined by the medical examiner’s office.

Diatchenko also appeared in “Sons of Anarchy,” “Alias” and “Bones,” and provided voices for video games, according to IMDB.com.
