British actor Julian Sands reported missing after going hiking in mountains in southern California

British actor Julian Sands has been reported missing after going hiking in mountains north of Los Angeles, California.

He disappeared last Friday in the Baldy Bowl area during bad weather in the San Gabriel Mountains.

Police said ground rescue teams abandoned their search at the weekend because of avalanche risks, but it was continuing by drone and helicopter.

Mr Sands, 65, is known for roles in popular films and TV dramas including A Room With A View, 24 and Smallville.

For weeks, California has been battered by deadly storms and a disaster declaration was issued by President Joe Biden.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s department said that when conditions were safer for rescue crews, they would resume the search.

It said it had responded to 14 calls on Mount San Antonio, known locally as Mount Baldy, and in the surrounding area over the last four weeks. It warned hikers to “stay away” from that area.

“It is extremely dangerous and even experienced hikers are getting in trouble,” the department said. They are also searching for another hiker, an American, who went missing in the same mountains.
