Another hiker has disappeared on the mountain where actor Julian Sands went missing, the authorities have said.

Jin Chung, 75, from Los Angeles has been missing since Sunday after last being seen at around 6am in a carpool to Mount Baldy with two others, the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department has said.

The group of three agreed to meet back at the car at around 2pm, but the 75-year-old never appeared, according to People magazine.

A search was conducted overnight but the hiker wasn’t found.

The disappearance within two weeks of the vanishing of Mr Sands, a 65-year-old English actor who was reported missing in the area of Baldy Bowl, northeast of Los Angeles.

The search for Mr Sands continued during the weekend with the use of helicopters, drones, as well as infrared devices, but without finding the actor, the sheriff’s department said on Monday.

Earlier in the search, crews tried to retrace his steps and ping his mobile phone.
