New York: ‘Superman’ producer Ilya Salkind’s daughter believes her father, who went missing in Mexico, was kidnapped and attacked.

Anastasia told TMZ that Salkind is being treated in a Mexican hospital for wounds on his head after his mysterious disappearance, reports a daily.

Salkind`s disappearance was reported on Thursday after his family and friends became worried when they hadn’t heard from him since Sunday - and he failed to show up for a dentist’s appointment the next day.

The 63-year-old producer was staying at his family’s home in Tepozlan, near Mexico City.

He was reported missing to authorities by his lawyer, and his family set up a website requesting information as to his whereabouts.

On Thursday night, his relieved family reported Salkind had been found, but had no additional details.
