Famous British actor, Julian Sands has reportedly gone missing after hiking in California over the weekend.
According to reports, the 65-year-old is one of two hikers who have gone missing in California’s San Gabriel Mountains. The actor is best remembered for his role in the 1985 film A Room With a View.
According to reports, Sands vanished sometime last week. His family reported him missing to the police on Friday night about 7:30 p.m. It is thought that the mountain has seen severe weather, making it difficult to use the limited air resources.
“On Friday, January 13, 2023, at about 7:30p.m., a hiker, identified as 65-year-old Julian Sands of North Hollywood, was reported missing in the Baldy Bowl area of Mt. Baldy. Search and Rescue crews responded and began a search. Due to trail conditions and the risk of avalanche, the ground crews were pulled off the mountain on Saturday evening,”a police spokesperson revealed to Metro.co.uk.
The spokesperson added that even though they had pulled out the search crew, they would organize another team when the weather was calm and safe for the rescue team to go back into the mountains.
“However, we continue to search by helicopter and drones when weather permits. We will schedule another ground search when the weather improves, and it is safe for our ground crews.”
