Julian Sands missing: Actor ‘knows Mount Baldy backwards’ as phone calls reveal fresh details

Julian Sands: Which Hollywood British actor is missing in California?

US federal and state agencies have joined the search for British actor Julian Sands, who has been missing for eight days.

The search has been stepped up as officials use mobile phone forensics to locate the actor.

Sands, 65, went missing on January 13 in the mountains of southern California. He was thought to be somewhere on the popular Baldy Bowl Trail, which climbs 3,900 feet for 4.5 miles to the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Police said on Friday that Sands, best known for films such as Room with a view and arachnophobia, two days later he was on the move.

Data from his mobile phone showed that Sands was “heading for the Mount Baldy area.” Efforts to check communications have since been unsuccessful, police said, likely due to the actor’s battery dying on his phone.

It happens after Independent showed images sent from Sands to his grandson Billy in September showing the father of three mountaineering.

Independent realizes that Sands’ son Henry has joined the search, retracing the route his father took with the help of an experienced climber.

In a statement published exclusively with Independenta friend of Sands described him as “a Byronian romantic and adventurer drawn to the extremes of nature”.
