British actor Julian Sands, known for his roles in movies like “A Room with a View,” “Warlock” and “Leaving Las Vegas,” was identified as a hiker who went missing last week in California, authorities said.
Sands, 65, has been missing since Friday in the Mount Baldy area, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Mara Rodriguez told The Orange County Register. A friend said Sands was believed to be somewhere along the Baldy Bowl Trail, a popular hiking route in the San Gabriel Mountains, KTLA-TV reported.
According to the sheriff’s department, ground crews were pulled off the mountain Saturday night because of trail conditions and the risk of an avalanche, KCAL-TV reported. The search continued with helicopters and drones, according to the Los Angeles Times. Ground searches will resume when weather and safety conditions improve, the newspaper reported.
Representatives for Sands did not immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment by the Times.
Born in England, Sands currently lives in the North Hollywood area, according to KABC-TV.
The actor has appeared in more than 150 films and television shows, KTLA reported. Some of his movie credits include roles in “The Killing Fields,” “Naked Lunch,” “Snakehead” and “Arachnophobia,” according to IMDb.com.
On television, Sands appeared in 11 episodes of 24, according to the entertainment database.
Mount Baldy is located 12 miles north of Ontario, California, in the Angeles National Forest.
