CELEBRITY Disappearance

Actors, musicians, politicians, sports stars, and celebrities of all kinds struggle to find a moment's peace away from the prying eyes of paparazzi and fans. They live under such intense scrutiny, that it's even more surprising when they disappear. Even so, many famous figures have vanished under mysterious circumstances and had to be reported missing to the authorities. In some cases, it was a simple misunderstanding, while in others, they disappeared without a trace and were never seen again.

British actor Julian Sands has now been missing for two weeks. He disappeared while hiking in the Mount Baldy area of California on January 13. The actor is 65 years old and has appeared in countless films and TV shows including 'A Room with a View' (1985) and 'Arachnophobia' (1990). The valiant search and rescue efforts to locate him have been impeded by severe weather conditions and avalanches in the past week. Prior to his disappearance, local authorities urgently warned against hiking in the area due to icy ground and high winds.

Drones and helicopters have also been deployed to locate Sands, but have yet to turn up any sign of the actor. On Jan 25., the San Bernardino County Sheriff's department announced that they will be using a RECCO machine to aid in the search. This piece of equipment can pick up on reflective materials, electronics, and even credit cards.

One of Sands' brothers, Nick Sands, told the press that he has already accepted that his brother won't turn up alive at this point. "I have come to terms with the fact he's gone and for me that's how I've dealt with it," Nick said, stating that he's already said his goodbyes. The family thanked the "heroic search teams" who continue working in dangerous conditions to locate Julian. 

Many of the celebrities on this list had issues with drugs, mental illness, and other factors that often contribute to a missing persons case, but some are far more difficult to explain. Click through to learn about the celebrities who suddenly dropped off the radar.
