Searches yielded no results then, and nothing has changed. A new search conducted on June 17th also found no evidence of his body. There were originally 8 unsuccessful searches when Sands disappeared but weather became an issue.

The 65 year old British actor had starred in dozens of movies and TV shows, including “A Room with a View” and “Boxing Helena.” Sands’ devoted family has posted a statement supporting the search efforts on the same Tweet as the Sheriff’s Department.
