I've been searching for the solution to the modified Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process \begin{equation*} dX_t = \kappa(\theta - X_t)dt + \sigma X_t dW_t \end{equation*} but it surprisingly hard to find. The Wikipedia page on the OU-process even mentions that a closed form solution exists but doesn't provide any reference. Any help?

This is covered in the Introduction to Stochastic Calculus with applications by Klebaner, though you can find very similar presentation in the answers to the question that Gordon referenced in the comment.
