“Extensive searches were conducted, both on land and in the air,” the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office, which is responsible for the searches, said in a statement. But, “at present, Mr. Sands has not been found and no trace has been discovered indicating his present whereabouts.”
Research will continue to the extent permitted by “weather and field conditions,” the text specifies.
The 65-year-old comedian, best known for films such as Room with a View and Warlock, has been missing in Mount Baldy since January 13.
This mountain, which is also called Mount San Antonio, reaches a height of 3068 meters above sea level and is the highest peak in the San Gabriel mountain range near Los Angeles. The area, popular with outdoor enthusiasts, has become dangerous due to the recent chain storms that hit California bringing plenty of snow with them.
Authorities found another missing mountaineer on Tuesday, a 75-year-old man who was injured due to the weather conditions.
San Bernardino County reported severe weather two weeks ago on Twitter and alerted a week ago that hiking Mount Baldy is dangerous during this period due to high winds and snow.
Born in Yorkshire, northern England, Julian Sands lives in California and is a mountain enthusiast.
In particular, he climbed the Andes in the early 1990s and got caught in a storm at an altitude of more than 6,000 meters above sea level. In 2020, he told the British daily newspaper The Guardian that he finds happiness “near the top of a mountain on a beautiful cold morning”.
