The 65-year-old left northeast of Los Angeles for a trip to the Mount Baldy area last Friday (January 13) and did not return, the sheriff's office in the San Bernardino district said on Wednesday (local time), according to media reports. Rescue teams were looking for Sands, but had to stop the operation due to bad weather and the risk of avalanches, spokeswoman Gloria Huerta told CNN. Drones are currently being used in the search.

Two hikers fell to their deaths in the area

California has been hit by severe winter storms for weeks with snow, landslides, mudslides and flooding. The Sheriff's Office recently warned against hiking Mount Baldy. The mountain is officially called Mount San Antonio, belongs to the San Gabriel mountain range and is almost 3070 meters high. “Conditions are adverse and extremely dangerous. Because of the strong winds, the snow has turned to ice, making hiking extremely dangerous,' a Facebook post said. Two hikers have died in the area after falls in the past few weeks.

Sands has starred in numerous series and films

Sands lives near Hollywood and, according to media reports, is an avid mountain hiker. In his decades-long career, besides 'A Room With a View', he has acted in numerous other films and series, such as 'Naked Lunch', 'Warlock', 'Snakehead', 'The Killing Fields', 'Leaving Las Vegas”, “Arachnophobia”, “Smallville2”, “24” or more recently “What/If2.
