Missing since Friday: Hollywood actor Julian Sands disappeared on a hiking tour

British actor Julian Sands is missing. The actor, known from films like "A Room With a View," has not returned from a hike in California's San Gabriel Mountains. Rescue workers have been looking for the missing person for days, as various media reports.

A hiker was reported missing in the hiking and skiing area around Mount Baldy Bowl north of Los Angeles on Friday evening. Now the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department has announced that it is 65-year-old Sands. Another hiker is also missing in the area.

The rescue team's search is made more difficult by severe winter weather. Search parties on the ground had to be withdrawn from the mountain on Saturday for their own safety, reports the sheriff's department. There is an acute danger of avalanches. "It's extremely dangerous and even for experienced hikers it's difficult to get through here," said a spokesman. The search will continue with drones and helicopters from the air. As soon as the weather permits, ground troops will be sent out again.

Sands rose to fame in the mid-'80s with roles in the Oscar-winning film The Killing Fields and as Helena Bonham Carter's lover in Room With a View. As a result, he was often seen in horror films such as "Gothic" or "Arachnophobia". He has acted in dozens of Hollywood productions and has also appeared in various television series. Sands lives in North Hollywood.

According to US media, Sands' wife reported the actor missing after he failed to return from his hike. His car was found in the area, but there is still no trace of Sands himself. Sands is known as a passionate hiker and climber. In a 2020 interview, when asked when he was happiest, he replied, "Near the top of a mountain on a gloriously cold morning."
