Julian Sands: Missing After Mount Baldy Hike

The 65-year-old performer, known for A Room With a View, went hiking Friday in California’s San Gabriel Mountains.


Actor Julian Sands, known for role in A Room With a View and Warlock, was reported missing Friday after hiking in California’s San Gabriel Mountains earlier that day.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Nate Campos confirmed.

Sands, 65, resident of North Hollywood, was reported missing around 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Baldy Bowl area of Mount Baldy, according to authorities.

A search began, but ground crews were taken off the mountain Saturday evening amid avalanche risks and poor trail conditions due to snow and ice.

In a press release issued Wednesday, the sheriff’s department noted that conditions have led to 14 rescue missions in the past four weeks and that two hikers have died in that span.

THR has reached out to Sands’ team for further comment.
