Due to the recent winter storms and fear of avalanches, ground crews were pulled from the search Saturday evening, deputies said. Since then, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office have used helicopters and drones in search for Sands.
Civilians are asked to stay away from the area. This comes as two hikers fell to their deaths during icy, wintry conditions. Prior to the news of Sands' disappearance, deputies have responded to 14 other rescue missions on Mt. Baldy and the surrounding area over the last four weeks.
With the recent disappearance cases, deputies are urging even the most experienced hikers to avoid the area.
Sands have also starred in other films including Warlock (1989), Naked Lunch (1991) and The Medallion (2003).
