The family of Julian Sands have praised the ‘heroic’ efforts of Californian authorities conducting the search for the missing British actor.
Sands, 65, was reported missing on a hiking trip in the Baldy Bowl area of the San Gabriel mountains and has not been seen for 11 days, as temperatures in the area hover just above the freezing mark.
A statement shared by local law enforcement read: ‘Our heartfelt thanks to the compassionate members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department who are coordinating the search for our beloved Julian, not least the heroic search teams listed below who are braving difficult conditions on the ground and in the air to bring Julian home.’
The statement went on to list various organisations involved in the search. ‘We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support,’ it added.
