LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities have confirmed that a burned-out pickup truck found near a Southern California ski resort belongs to a fired Los Angeles police officer wanted in three murders.
San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon says Christopher Dorner's truck was found near the Bear Mountain ski area at Big Bear Lake, about 80 miles east of Los Angeles.
The sheriff says Dorner has not been located but a door-to-door search is under way.
Thousands of law enforcement officers have been searching for Dorner, who is suspected of murdering a former LAPD captain's daughter, her fiance and a Riverside city police officer. Dorner is also suspected of wounding two other officers.
A manifesto Dorner is believed to have posted online says he wants to wage war on the LAPD.
