Actor Julian Sands (65) was hiking in California when all trace of him was lost. The British actor has been missing since January 13 – now his family speaks up with an emotional statement.
Julian Sands is actually known for his acting roles in films like Room With a View and Leaving Las Vegas. Now the Briton is making worrying headlines: after a hike in the mountainous region of Mount Baldy in California, he was reported missing . California has seen severe snowstorms with landslides, mudslides and flooding in recent weeks. The rescue team's search is made more difficult by bad weather conditions and an increased risk of avalanches.
A few days after his disappearance, search parties discovered Julian Sands' abandoned car in the snow.
Sands' family members have now shared a touching statement with the public via the Twitter account of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department involved in the search. In it they thank the 'brave rescue troops' who, despite the difficult conditions, do everything they can to bring 'their beloved Julian' back home. They were deeply touched by this 'heroic act', the 'love and support'. The Sherif's Department writes that on the 11th day of the search it thanks all the helpers involved and continues to use all available means to find Julian Sands.
The comments show a lot of sympathy from the public. A user writes “I am praying for Mr. Sands and his family. He has brought so much joy to me and my family through his work over the years and we continue to hope he returns safely. Sending lots of love.” A difficult and very emotional time especially for Julian Sands' family.source: vip.de
