British actor Julian Sands has been identified as a hiker missing in the Mt. Baldy area of California since

last Friday, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

Sands was reported missing at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 13.

The search for Sands is ongoing but is currently unsafe to search by foot due to the dangerous conditions on the mountain.

The sheriff's office has been searching by air with helicopters and drones but the search has been unsuccessful so far.

Officials don't know when they will be able to search by foot and say it will depend on the conditions on the mountain.

They are uncertain if they will be able to find Sands alive.

Cell phone pings from Jan. 15 lead officials to believe Sands went missing near Mt. Baldy.

Mt. Baldy is located in the San Gabriel Mountains in San Bernardino County.

Sands's credits include films like "A Room with a View" and "The Killing Fields" and TV shows like "24" and "Smallville."
