Julian Sands, the British actor who starred in A Room With A View (1985), Naked Lunch (1991), Boxing Helena (1993), and Leaving Las Vegas (1995), among other movies, has been missing for five days in Southern California's San Gabriel Mountains, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said Wednesday. Sands, 65, was reported missing Friday in the Mt. Baldy area, and search and rescue crews had to suspend their search Saturday due to poor trail conditions and avalanche risks from recent heavy rains.

The search for Sands, a resident of North Hollywood, has continued with helicopters and drones, and ground searches will continue when conditions are deemed safe enough, San Bernardino Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Gloria Huerta said. People should avoid the Mt. Baldy area, which is currently "much too dangerous, even for the skilled hiker," she added.
