SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- Rescue personnel in California have found a 75-year-old hiker who was lost on the same snow-covered mountain where actor Julian Sands is missing.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department launched the search after Chung didnt return from a hike Sunday on 10,064-foot (3,068-meter) Mt. Baldy.
"Helicopters and drones continued to use infrared devices during the search however, all were negative for any signs of Sands," the departments statement said.
Sands, 65, was reported missing Jan. 13 while hiking. Search and rescue crews began looking for him on the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) northeast of downtown Los Angeles.
Storms have coated the mountain with heavy snow and ice, and searches have been thwarted by the threat of avalanches and foul weather, including powerful winds.
Authorities describe mountain conditions as extremely dangerous. Two hikers have died in recent weeks. One fell at least 500 feet (152 meters) down an icy slope.
