Where is Jake Gyllenhaal?

1/23/2008 8:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jake GyllenhaalJake Gyllenhaal has yet to be seen or heard from since the death of his close friend, Heath Ledger -- and people on the set of his new film are working hard to keep it that way.

Gyllenhaal is in New Mexico, currently filming his new movie, "Brothers." We're told there are no plans to shut down production, but Jake is very upset and doesn't want to talk to the media -- so the set has been closed to non-crew members and extra security has been hired.

Jake is the godfather to Heath's daughter, Matilda Rose.

in touch weekly just released the fact about heaths body being released to the funeral home..

Following an inconclusive autopsy this morning, In Touch can exclusively reveal that the body of actor Heath Ledger has been moved from the morgue at the Medical Commissioner’s office to the Frank E.

Who exactly is it that needs to see or hear from Jake? He is no doubt grieving over the sudden loss of his friend and should be left alone, along with Michelle and the rest of Heath's family and friends.

I'm glad that the people working with Jake are being so adament about protecting his privacy during this difficult time. Just as anyone who has ever lost a loved one can tell you, the last thing you want is to have to answer alot of questions ( like "how do you feel?" well how the hell do you THINK I feel????, etc..), or be bothered by anyone, no matter how well-intentioned they might be.

what kinda headline is this?
of course he's nowhere to be seen or heard... he's grieving the loss of a friend.
when someone loses a loved one-- he/she shouldnt be expected to give a press junket.

show some respect and leave people to mourn in their own way...

The following is an url to a recenlty released news article outlining the protest of Heath's funeral by some religious fanatics and gay bshers.

So sad how the nuts come out of the wood work instead of allowing a man to rest and peace and his family to mourn in private dignity.

Thank you so much for informing the public on Jake's wellbeing after losing his dear friend Heath. Please let him grieve in peace if that is his wish. He has been blessed with being the godfather of Heath's little girl, Matilda, I am sure Jake will never let Matilda forget her father and at the same time make sure she and her mother, Michelle are taken care of.

he is being buried in australia...page six is reporting

Heath Ledger is being prepared to make his last trip home to Perth, Australia for burial. Following his autopsy this morning his body was transported from the New York medical examiner’s office, to the Frank E. Campbell funeral chapel.

Heath’s body will be shipped home as soon as possible. Although the actor’s family is still believed to be in Australia, his ex-fiancee, Michelle Williams, who is also the mother of his child, was flying into New York from Sweden today, perhaps to take Heath’s body home.

A rep for the Australian consulate, told PageSix, “Our consulate has been in contact with his family and has offered assistance” to help fly Heath’s body back to Australia.

Jake was the main reason Heath and Michelle called it quits. Heath had maintained a romantic relationship with Jake after Brokeback and Michelle was not willing to share him. Sad.

Who cares where Jake is? Respect and give him privacy, for God's sake. All he did was befriend a troubled soul, and for that he gets scrutinized???? Better that care is taken to track where Heath's body is so there is a clean slate.

Media.....it's hard on Jake as it is. Respect his wishes to not speak with the media so he can deal with his friends death in his own way.
