LOS ANGELES — Julian Sands, a British actor who has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows since the 1980s, is one of two missing hikers being searched for in the mountains of Southern California, authorities confirmed Wednesday.
Sands has been missing since last week in the Mount Baldy area. Relatives reported him missing on Friday evening.
According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, severe weather on the mountain was difficult and air resources were limited.
Sands is known for his roles in several films, including the 1985 films A Room with a View, The Wizard, and Leaving Las Vegas.
Born in England, the 65-year-old now lives in the North Hollywood area.
Meanwhile, a separate search for the other tourist continues in Los Angeles County.
Bob Gregory, of Hawthorne, was reported missing Monday afternoon by his family. They were looking for him in the Crystal Lake area of the San Gabriel Mountains, according to the Los Angeles County San Dimas Sheriff’s Station.
The family say they are distraught and fear he may have injured himself and fallen. They added that the police are tracking his mobile phone.
On Tuesday, search teams combed the area on the ground and from the air. However, those efforts were limited to crews Wednesday because of ice in the difficult terrain, authorities said.
