Hollywood Actor Julian Sands who has starred in several Oscar-nominee films including “A Room with a View,” has gone missing for the last five days in the Southern California Mountains where, according to the authorities, he was reported to be hiking.

Julian was reported to have gone missing on Friday on a trail on Mt. Baldy in San Bernardino County. Search and rescue crews were on the look for Sands in the area of the San Gabriel Mountains which is located about 40 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. The ground search on Saturday had to be suspended because of the trail conditions and avalanche risks. The operation has not yet been able to be resumed.

“They are searching for Sands as weather allows with helicopters and drones, and will resume the ground search when it’s safe,” said the authorities.

The latest in a series of storms that have created dangerous mountain conditions swept into Southern California on Friday and lasted through the weekend. Two other hikers have recently died in the area.

Representatives for Sands, an English-born actor who now lives in North Hollywood, did not immediately reply to emails seeking comment or further details.

Sands starred opposite Helena Bonham Carter in the 1985 British romance from director James Ivory, “A Room With a View.”

He also had major roles in 1989′s “Warlock,” 1990′s “Arachnophobia,” 1991′s “Naked Lunch,” 1993′s “Boxing Helena,” and 1995′s “Leaving Las Vegas.”

Sands has worked consistently in the decades since with smaller roles in film and television.
