It was not immediately known whether the remains belong to actor Julian Sands, 65, who went missing in January in the Mt. Baldy area.

Another search for the actor occurred June 17, but did not yield any findings.

“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,” Sands’ family said in a statement following the latest search.

Sands, of North Hollywood, was reported missing in the Baldy Bowl area on Jan. 13, officials have said. He had been hiking alone at the time of his disappearance.
