His worried family praised the “heroic” efforts of Californian authorities in a statement shared by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office.
The statement read: “Our heartfelt thanks to the compassionate members of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department who are coordinating the search for our beloved Julian, not least the heroic search teams listed below who are braving difficult conditions on the ground and in the air to bring Julian home.”
The statement went on to list various organisations involved in the search.
“We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support,” it added.
Both national and state officials are now working with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s office after the 65-year-old disappeared near LA in California.
The actor was planning to complete the dangerous trek in a day but was reported missing when he failed to return home.
Last week Julian’s snow-covered car was recovered by investigators and towed away.
Over the weekend it was revealed that US authorities were using GPS data from his phone to try to pinpoint his location.
