Julian Sands: ‘Intermittent’ aerial search will continue after bad weather hampered previous efforts | Ents & Arts News

Air patrols are still being carried out “intermittently” in search of British actor Julian Sands who went missing three weeks ago in California.

Normally, similar searches would be downgraded after 10 days, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

However, as bad weather has so far hampered efforts, it was decided to extend the search period.

“Our aviation division continues to patrol this area, intermittently, looking for Mr Sands“said a spokesperson.

“Typically, we search for 10 days before moving to a passive search. In this case, weather preventing a continued search, we have extended these plans.

“While weather and mountain conditions continue to be an issue, we will resume ground searches once weather conditions permit and the snow melts.”

Sands, 65, was reported missing on January 13 after failing to return from a hike in the Mount Baldy area of ​​the San Gabriel Mountains.

Extensive searches for the actor have since been undertaken on foot and by air by local and national agencies.

Authorities have already used a Recco device, which can detect electronic devices and credit cards, in hopes of establishing a more precise area in which to focus search efforts.

Last weekend, Sand’s hiking partner and friend Kevin Ryan said it was obvious “something went wrong” but that the actor’s advanced experience and skills would “hopefully” see his safe return.
