Julian Sands’ family cling to hope as phone pings reveal new details – live

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

Phone data from missing actor Julian Sands has revealed his last known movements, as his family cling to hope one week after he was reported missing.

Police revealed on Friday that the British actor, best known for films such as A Room With a View other arachnophobia, was on the move two days after he was reported missing in the California mountains.

Phone pings attempted since have failed, police said, likely due to the actor’s phone running out of battery.

It comes after The Independent revealed images sent from Sands to his grandson Billy in September, which show the father-of-three mountaineering.

Sands has been missing in the Mount Baldy area since January 13, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said. He was thinking to have been somewhere on the popular Baldy Bowl Trail, which climbs 3,900 feet over 4.5 miles to the highest summit in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Search and rescue crews looking for Sands were initially forced to suspend the search over the weekend because of an avalanche threat. Snow and fog has continued to hinder the search in the days since.

The Independent understands that Sands’ son Henry has joined the search. He is retracing the route his father took, with the assistance of an experienced climber.

Police update: Sands is believed to have still been on the move on Sunday

Sands appeared to be on the move two whole days after he was first reported missing.

A spokesperson for San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said: “On January 15, 2023, phone pings showed Sands to be heading to the Mount Baldy area.

“Additional phone pings from the cell provider were attempted but were unsuccessful, due to the lack of cell service and most likely cell phone power failure.”
