The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department continued to search for English actor Julian Sands on Saturday but were unsuccessful in locating him.
Search Sheriff’s Department employees, deputies and more than 80 search and rescue volunteers were involved. They were aided by two helicopters and a drone searching from the air and areas not accessible to ground crews.
Sands, an experienced mountain hiker, was reported missing in mid-January while hiking Mount Baldy — located 12 miles north of Ontario, California — in the Angeles National Forest. Shortly thereafter the area was hit by a snow storm, which hampered the search operation. The Sheriff’s Department reported that despite the warm weather, there are still areas that are frozen and inaccessible to search crews.
This is the eighth search – both air and ground – conducted by the Sheriff’s Department since January. There have also been an additional eight searches that were not affiliated with the Sheriff’s Department.
Sands, who lives in North Hollywood, has appeared in more than 150 films and television shows. He is best known for starring in “A Room with a View,” “Warlock” and “Arachnophobia.” He has three adult children.
