The search for actor Julian Sands, who went missing in the California mountains in January, continues. The services are combing the area around the trail he walked, but still have not found any trace of the 65-year-old.
The search for British actor Julian Sands resumed on Saturday, January 13 lost while hiking in the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles, California, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a press release on Monday. As indicated, his location has still not been traced.
On Sunday, services combed the Mount Baldy area, near where the 65-year-old actor disappeared. More than 80 people participated in the search, including volunteers, whose efforts were supported by two helicopters and drones. “Despite the recent warmer days, parts of the mountain remain inaccessible due to the extreme alpine conditions,” the release said. “A significant part of the area is occupied by steep terrain and ravines, where there is still more than 3 meters of ice and snow,” it said.
The disappearance of Julian Sands
After the disappearance of the actor in January, the services set out to search for him eight times, both by land and air, which translated into over 500 hours of operations. In addition, eight other unrelated searches were conducted in the same region. Still, no trace of him has been found. The sheriff’s office emphasizes that the case of the actor’s disappearance remains open and the search will continue, albeit on a limited basis. A video of the search last weekend appeared on the services’ Twitter account.
The last recorded location of Sands’ phone, dated January 15, indicates he was still on the trail at the time. However, checking this place was not successful. Subsequent attempts to track down the actor’s location have failed, which could have been due to the lack of availability of mobile services and the discharge of the phone, as reported at the time.
Julian Sands gained popularity thanks to his role in “A Room with a View”. In the following years, he starred in films such as “Arachnophobia”, “The Killing Fields”, “The Girl with the Tattoo” or “Wherever You Are, If You Are”. He also guest-starred on the popular TV series Smallville. Sands is the father of three children.
