Julian Sands missing – breaking news: Sheriff’s office gives updates on search for missing actor

Julian Sands: Who is the British Hollywood actor missing in California?

Authorities in California say the search for Julian Sands will continue only by air.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department released an update Wednesday night US time to say helicopters were continuing to search the San Gabriel Mountains for any sign of the missing British actor.

The California Highway Patrol’s Valley Division Air Ops has been brought in to assist in the search using a device that can detect reflective material and, in some cases, credit cards, the sheriff’s office said.

Meanwhile, Julian Sands’ brother Nick has said he knows “in my heart” that his sibling is no longer alive as the search for the missing British actor entered its second week.

“Regardless of sibling rivalry being what it is, it would be like him to walk away and prove me wrong,” Nick said in comments to his local Yorkshire paper. Craven Herald.

Sands was reported missing on January 13, sparking a major search and rescue effort led by the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Office.

On Tuesday, an official statement from the sheriff’s office said fresh searches on higher ground for Sands were still not possible due to poor conditions.

Last week, Sands’ family released the last known photos of him mountain climbing and said The independent: “This is how he would love to be seen, doing what he loved best—a heroic mountaineer.”

SUMMARY: Ground search for Julian Sands has been called off

The search for missing actor Julian Sands in California’s San Gabriel Mountains is currently only by air, police said.

As efforts to find Sands neared their second week, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday night that ground searches in higher ground were no longer possible due to poor local weather conditions.

Police shared photos of the helicopters still being used in the aerial search and said the California Highway Patrol’s Valley Division Air Ops has been brought in to assist.

Searchers use a RECCO device – a radar system that can detect equivalent RECCO reflectors worn by climbers on their clothing and bags, as well as other reflective surfaces such as electronics and even sometimes credit cards.

“We hope our (California Highway Patrol) partners, Officers Hertzell & Calcutt, can pinpoint an area where we can focus our search efforts and we thank them for their assistance,” the latest police update read, adding that “additional information will be released when it becomes available”.

Sands, 65, was hiking in the Baldy Bowl area of ​​the San Gabriel Mountains north of Los Angeles when he disappeared on January 13. He has not been heard from since.
