Julian Sands was supposed to go missing while climbing in the mountains – according to the Variety portal, the last time the actor was seen around 7:30 p.m. on Friday, January 13, near Mount Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountains in California. Another person is also wanted with him. Sands is known to have wandered in the Baldy Bowl tourist area, about 50 miles northeast of Los Angeles. Situated just below the Mount Baldy ski area, the site is a popular destination for skiers, climbers and hikers.

According to local media, the actor was reported missing by his wife – reports Reuters.

“From what I understand, he went out on a trip that day and when he didn’t return, his family reported him missing,” Gloria Huerta, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, told KABC-TV.

Variety reports that rescuers began searching for the missing 65-year-old on Friday, but after 24 hours the group was withdrawn due to severe weather conditions and the risk of avalanches. Since then, searches have been carried out from the air: from the helicopter deck and using drones.

British film producer Cassian Elwes shared the information that he had known about Sands’ disappearance for several days. “I am devastated. A very close family friend who was an adventurer in everything he did. I said many prayers‘ Elwes wrote in a Twitter post.

Sands has been known for years as a lover of climbing. “I love mountain climbing, I’ve spent a lot of time over the years in the Alps, the Andes, Alaska and the American Ranges,” the actor told ThriveGlobal in 2020.

The Briton is best known for his roles in films such as the 1985 drama A Room with a View and 1989’s The Wizard.
