Martin Sheen has been found after his son Charlie Sheen feared he had gone missing in the devastating wildfires in Southern California.

The former Two and a Half Men star shared on social media on Friday that he had been unable to reach his father and mother Janet since 30,000 homes in the Point Dume area of Malibu were evacuated.

“I cannot get ahold of my parents Martin and Janet Sheen,” Charlie, 53, wrote on Twitter. “They are in the group, at the staging ground near Zuma Beach. If anyone has eyes on them, please let me know that they are safe and sound in the middle of this horrific scenario.”

Hours later, Martin spoke to U.S. news network Fox 11, and revealed he and his wife were safe and well.

"We evacuated early this morning from Point Dume around 9:30, and we’ve been here ever since. Emilio, Ramon, Renee, Charlie... we’re fine,” the 78-year-old assured his four children. “We’re at Zuma Beach and will probably sleep in the car tonight. We’re just fine and hope you guys are, too."

The West Wing star called the wildfires "the worst ones I’ve seen," and added: “We haven’t lost any lives so we have that to be grateful for."

High winds, low humidity and dry vegetation have stoked the fires, which have quickly spread throughout Southern California.

At least nine people have died in the wildfires so far.

State officials put the total number of people forced from their homes at about 250,000, and evacuation orders included the entire city of Malibu, which is home to some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

Lady Gaga, the Kardashian sisters, Cher, Alyssa Milano, Rainn Wilson, rocker Melissa Etheridge and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro have also been evacuated, while reports suggest Caitlyn Jenner's property overlooking Malibu has been destroyed.
