KYMA

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP, KYMA/KECY) - Rescue personnel in California have launched a search for a second hiker on the same mountain where actor Julian Sands is missing.

The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that its search and rescue team received a request Sunday to search for a 75-year-old Los Angeles man on Mt. Baldy.

Jin Chung, of North Hollywood, was last seen around 6 a.m. on Sunday, the sheriff's department said.

Chung carpooled to the mountain with two others and made plans to meet them at the vehicle at 2 p.m., but Chung did not return, authorities said. Ground crews searched unsuccessfully for Chung after he was reported missing.

The sheriff's department said rescuers unsuccessfully continued searching for Sands on Mt. Baldy over the weekend.

"Helicopters and drones continued to use infrared devices during the search. However, all were negative for any signs of Sands," the department's statement said.

Sands, 65, was reported missing Jan. 13 while hiking. Search and rescue crews began looking for him in the area of the San Gabriel Mountains; 40 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

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 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.
