LOS ANGELES - Coroner's officials investigating Tony Scott's death say the director left several notes to loved ones in his car before jumping from a Los Angeles bridge Sunday.

Coroner's spokesman Craig Harvey says initial investigative notes do not classify the writings as suicide notes, but the office is treating his death as a probable suicide. He says investigators indicated multiple notes were found in Scott's car and at another location.

The "Top Gun" director jumped to his death off a towering suspension bridge over Los Angeles Harbor. An autopsy will be performed Monday.

The 68-year old is the youngest brother of director Ridley Scott and directed thrillers such as "Crimson Tide" and 2010's "Unstoppable."

He was married and has twin sons.
