ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Noted comedian and "Full House" star Bob Saget has passed away. He was 65.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, after an unidentified man was found unresponsive in his hotel room Sunday.

The sheriff's office later identified the victim as Saget, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The circumstances of his death are not immediately known, but the sheriff's office said there were no signs of foul play or drug use.
