Police in southern California say they are “hopeful” of finding missing actor Julian Sands, but admitted the outcome of the search “may not be what we would like”.
Sands has not been seen for four weeks, after first being reported missing in the Mount Baldy region of the San Gabriel mountains on 13 January.
“Regarding the search for Julian Sands, we remain hopeful but know the outcome may not be what we would like,” a spokesperson for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s department said.
“Conditions on Mt Baldy remain a danger and our Aviation Division still patrols the area when they are available. We also plan to search the area by ground in the future.”
Sands’s family were “grateful” for the support they had received since his disappearance, the spokesperson added, but had no further public statement at this time.
The 65-year-old, was reported missing after he failed to return from a hike in January and no trace of him has so far been found.
