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

Julian Sands’ brother Nick has said that he knows “in my heart” that his sibling is no longer alive, as the search for the missing British actor entered its 12th day.

In comments to his local Yorkshire paper, the Craven Herald, Nick said: “He has not yet been declared missing, presumed dead, but I know in my heart that he has gone. However sibling rivalry being what it is, it would be just like him to walk out of there and prove me wrong.”

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

In the most recent update, the San Bernardino County’s rescue team has located the second hiker who went missing on the mountain where Julian Sands disappeared.

A 75-year-old hiker named Jin Chung, who went missing on Sunday (22 January), was located on Tuesday (24 January).

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

Last week, Sands’ family released the last known images of him mountaineering, telling The Independent: “This is how he would love to be seen, doing what he loved best – a heroic mountaineer.”
