LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Julian Sands has been missing for five days since he hiked Mt. Baldy in southern California, authorities said Wednesday.

Sands, 65, was reported missing in the Baldy Bowl area around 7:30 p.m. Friday, said Mara Rodriguez, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Crews began a search for Sands, known for his role in «A Room with a View,» but the effort was halted Saturday night due to trail conditions and avalanche risk, Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez said search and rescue teams will continue to scan the area using a helicopter and drones when weather permits and will schedule another ground search when it is safe to do so.

The sheriff’s department advised people to heed warnings and avoid the area, where high winds and ice have created treacherous conditions.

«Recent storms that brought snow and ice are not favorable for hikers, even those who feel they have a high level of experience,» the department said in a notice.

Search and rescue teams have launched 14 rescue missions for lost, stranded and injured hikers on and around the mountain over the past four weeks, the department said, with two hikers dying after falling and injuring themselves.

Mt. Baldy is in the San Gabriel Mountains, northeast of Los Angeles.

Sands, an English-born actor, starred in the 1985 film «A Room With a View» and other films, including «Warlock» (1989) and «Arachnophobia» (1990). He has also appeared in many other movies and TV shows over the decades.
