On Tuesday, the San Bernardino County Sheriff confirmed that Jim Chung, a man who went missing in the same area as the 65-year-old Smallville star, has been found alive.

According to People, the 75-year-old hiker went missing on Mount Baldy in California, the same location where Sands disappeared, and "suffered some weather-related injuries and a leg injury but was able to walk out with the assistance of the crew members."

The report also stated authorities are still using "ground and air search efforts" to find the Arachnophobia star who was reported missing on January 19.

"As of this time, Mr. Sands has not been found and no evidence of his current location has been discovered. The search will continue, weather and ground conditions permitting," the sheriff's department said.

Yet, the actor's brother Nick Sands has expressed that he believes his missing brother is "gone."

While speaking to Craven Herald & Pioneer, the brother of the missing actor said, "He has not yet been declared missing, presumed dead, but I know in my heart that he has gone."

"However, sibling rivalry being what it is, it would be just like him to walk out of there and prove me wrong."

The missing actor's brother added that the pair planned to join their brothers for a drink on Monday.

"He will be missed, and I guess we will raise a glass to him. He has an army of friends, fans, and admirers who have been fantastic in their support and will miss Jules dearly," he remarked.
