75-year-old hiker found on Mt. Baldy on the search for missing actor Julian Sands


A 75-year-old hiker who was reported missing on Sunday has been found alive on Mt. Baldy, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

Jin Chung of Los Angeles was found Tuesday afternoon with some “weather-related injuries” and a leg injury, but was able to walk with the help of rescue personnel, the department said in a press release.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Chung went missing on Mt. Baldy nine days after British actor Julian Sands, 65, was reported missing on the same mountain.

Crews continue to search by air and ground for Sands, the sheriff’s department said Tuesday.

“To date, Mr. Sands has not been found and no evidence of his current location has been discovered,” the department said. “The search will continue, weather and soil permitting.”

Some ground crew members were pulled off the mountain last week due to avalanche risks and dangerous trail conditions, a department spokesman said. They have since revisited previously searched areas, but with limited access to the summit due to weather.
