Actor Julian Sands was first reported missing from Mt. Baldy area in California on 13 January – according to CNN. His friend actor Kevin Ryan said that Sands embarked on a tricky and dangerous hike. 

Despite the actor being the “most advanced hiker” he knows – Ryan revealed that each day brings more pressure and a lot of doubt.

“He is beyond experienced and I’m hoping that he’s tucked away somewhere and can pull through,” said Ryan according to Sky News.

Ryan warned that Mount Baldy is a “different mountain” in winter.

“But that is something that Julian would have seen as a challenge, to go up in those conditions. He likes to push himself and he’s done that,” he continued.

“And, like anything, that makes you better, to push yourself in life. But in this situation, it’s a very tricky, dangerous hike with these weather conditions. Obviously something has gone wrong. Hopefully with time we’ll find out and hopefully it’ll be the best result,” he added.
