British film and TV actor goes missing while hiking in Californian mountains


British actor Julian Sands has gone missing while hiking in Californian mountains.

The 65-year-old disappeared on Friday evening – with teams searching for him since the weekend.

Avalanche risks and trail conditions meant ground crews were pulled off the mountain on Saturday evening.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s department said in a statement: “We continue to search by helicopter and drones when the weather permits.”

Sands is known for his roles in Arachnophobia, Room With A View, Leaving Las Vegas and Warlock – as well as TV appearances on 24, Smallville and Banshee.

He has lived in Los Angeles since 2020, and most recently played a chief medical officer in Benediction.

From 1984 to 1987, he was married to journalist Sarah Sands, who has previously edited the Evening Standard and BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
