A former producer of Survivor was detained in Mexico after his missing wife's body turned up in a sewer at a resort in Cancun, according to U.S. and Mexican media reports.

Bruce Beresford-Redman had reported the disappearance of wife Monica, telling KCAL-TV in Los Angeles on Wednesday that he was waiting by the phone for any word of her fate. She reportedly had not returned from a shopping trip on Monday.

"I'm very hopeful someone will find my wife very soon," he told the station. "She still hasn't been located and we're looking."

Her body was found Thursday morning in the sewer of the Moon Palace resort where the family was staying, Fox News reports.



Early signs suggested she "died of strangulation because of the bruising," regional police spokesperson Adrian Cardena tells CNN.

Beresford-Redman is a three-time Emmy nominee who also produced Pimp My Ride and The Restaurant. His wife owns Zabumba Bar & Restaurant in Venice, Calif., which serves Brazilian specialties and hosts music nights, the Los Angeles Times reports. In addition to Survivor, he worked on Pimp My Ride and The Restaurant.
