When Julian Sands didn’t come home by 7:30 pm, his wife reported him missing to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigation of Case
Julian’s cell phone sent its last signal on January 15, 2023, from a spot on the Baldy Bowl trail, which goes up 3,900 feet over 4.5 miles to the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains.
Authorities used drones and helicopters to search the area, but avalanche risks, dangerous rail conditions, and bad weather slowed down the search.
On January 18, 2023, Julian’s car was found covered in snow in a parking lot. This is likely where he left it before going on his hike.
Authorities told hikers to stay away from that area and said that Search and Rescue teams had been called to Mount Baldy and the area around it 14 times in the last month, with two hikers dying after falling.
Authorities are also looking for Bob Gregory, who is 61 years old and from Hawthorne. He hasn’t been seen since January 18 near Crystal Lake in the San Gabriel Mountains.
On January 24, authorities found Jin Chung, a hiker who had been reported missing two days earlier from Mount Baldy.
On January 25, it was said that the search for Julian would only be done from the air.
The search for Julian Sands is currently active and ongoing.
The circumstances of Julian Sands’s disappearance remain unclear and his case is currently classified as missing. His case remains unsolved.
