    Actor Julian Sands, 65, is one of two hikers missing in the San Gabriel Mountains in California.

    The British star, who starred in A Room With A View, was last seen last Friday (January 13) in the Mount Baldy area of the range.

    Julain's family have reported that the actor has failed to contact since he set foot in the Mountains.

    They, and emergency services, are unsure whether the actor was in the area and whether he was hiking alone or accompanied by someone else.

    San Bernadino County Sheriff's Department said, "severe weather on the mountain has been difficult," causing air resources to be limited and conditions to be impacted.

    Emergency crews continue searching for the movie actor by helicopter and drones. However, the weather has implicated their search.

    The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department plans to reschedule another ground search when the weather improves.

    San Bernardino County Sheriff Department, Corporal Nathan Campos, told People: "Around 7:30 pm on Friday, Jan 13, a hiker was reported missing in the Baldy Bowl area,"

    "A search crew was sent out, but because of weather conditions, they were pulled on Saturday. Helicopters and drones will be out there to continue to search, weather permitting."

    The search for the actor comes as the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department issued a warning to hikers in the area amid severe weather conditions.

    "Over the last four weeks, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Search and Rescue (SAR) Teams have responded to 14 rescue missions on Mt Baldy and in the surrounding area," police said in a news release via Facebook on Wednesday.

    "These rescue missions have been for lost, stranded and/or injured hikers. Unfortunately, during these past four weeks, two hikers did not survive after falling and injuring themselves," it added.

    Police restated that the weather in the mountain is "adverse and extremely dangerous" following high winds and recent severe storms across the state.

    The actor starred in many notable movies, such as Warlock, Boxing Helena and Leaving Las Vegas, among many others.

    He was born in Otley, England. However, he currently lives in North Hollywood, near where he reportedly went missing
