Human Remains Recovered near Mount Baldy’s Missing Actor Julian Sands

Officials have confirmed that human remains were found near where Julian Sands went missing while climbing Mount Baldy in California.

The San Fernando Police Department said in a statement on Saturday, “At about 10:00 a.m., civilian hikers contacted the Fontana Sheriff’s Station after they discovered human remains in the Mt. Baldy wilderness.”

“Fontana Station deputies, along with the Sheriff’s Department’s Emergency Operations Division, responded to the scene.”

Even though the police didn’t know that the body was that of Ocean’s Thirteen actor Julian Sands, they found it in the same place on California’s Mount Baldy where the Ocean’s Thirteen star was last seen during a walk in January.

“The decedent was transported to the Coroner’s Office, pending positive identification. Identification should be completed next week,” said the message.

Last week, the Sands family said through the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, “We are deeply grateful to the search teams and coordinators who have worked tirelessly to find Julian.”

“We continue to hold Julian in our hearts with bright memories of him as a wonderful father, husband, explorer, lover of the natural world and the arts, and as an original and collaborative performer. Although the missing hiker, Julian Sands, was not located during the recent search mission, the case remains active. We want to thank all the individuals who assisted in the June 17 search and the previous search missions,” the office said at the end of the tweet.

On January 13, Julian Sands’s wife, Evgenia Citkowitz, said that he was lost in the Baldy Bowl area.
