Actor julian sands has gone missing after going hiking in the mountains north of los angeles. the san bernardino county sheriff’s department is searching for him, as well as another hiker, an american, who also went missing in the same mountains. last week, a mother of four died after sliding more than 500ft down mount baldy.
the incident happened on friday 13 january at 19:30 local time. the search is taking place in the mountains north of los angeles, and the california area has been hit by deadly storms and a disaster declaration was issued by president joe biden.
mr sands has talked in the past about his love of hiking and mountain climbing, and the san bernardino county sheriff’s department warned hikers to “stay away” from the area. it is believed that the severe weather warnings and trail conditions caused the search and rescue crews to abandon their search at the weekend due to avalanche risks, but it is continuing by drone and helicopter. when asked in a guardian interview in 2020 what made him happy, he replied: “close to a mountain summit on a glorious cold summit.”
