The search area around Mt. Baldy has been hampered by the harsh winter weather in California. According to Campos, rescue workers on the ground were “taken off the mount on Saturday evening for their safety,” and the search was carried out “by drone and helicopter when the weather permitted.”

The alert read,

“Please know the current conditions on Mt Baldy are adverse and extremely dangerous,”

“Due to the high winds, the snow has turned to ice making hiking extremely dangerous. Sheriff’s Search and Rescue efforts are often hampered by poor weather along with dangerous avalanche conditions.”

Authorities warn the public to avoid the region because there is a serious avalanche risk there. Rescue teams want to continue a ground search as soon as the weather improves, he said.

Campos said,

 “It’s extremely dangerous, and experienced hikers are having a hard time getting through there.”

Following hazardous weather in the area, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s department advised hikers to “think twice and heed warnings.

Fans & Friends Pray for Julian Sands

Fans and Friends are hoping for the best and praying for Sands while sending good vibes to the family. Hope it brings some little measure of consolation till Sands is found.

You have geeyot to be kidding me. Julian Sands (yes, the actor) is missing on Mount Baldy in California, and has apparently been missing since the 13th. In the last 4 weeks, they’ve done 14 rescue missions there and two people have died. They already canceled one search for Sands due to bad weather.

Julian Sands can’t die from getting lost on a hike in bad weather! He’s a hero of mine and so naturally that insulates him from such a Fate. This man is responsible for one of the only truly dignified on-screen depictions of a historical witch in the movie “Warlock”. This can’t be real.
