Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD in 2008 for making false statements, is linked to a weekend killing in which one of the victims was the daughter of a former police captain who had represented him during the disciplinary hearing. Authorities believe Dorner opened fire early Thursday on police in cities east of Los Angeles, killing an officer and wounding another.  Police issued a statewide "officer safety warning" and police were sent to protect people named in the posting that was believed to be written by Dorner.  (AP Photo/Los Angeles Police Department)

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Law enforcement officers are continuing to search a snow-covered mountain near a Southern California ski area for a fired Los Angeles police officer suspected of three murders.

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon says the hunt will go on until Christopher Dorner is found or there's evidence that he's left the mountain.

Searchers Friday are dealing with falling snow and freezing temperatures in the Big Bear Lake region of the San Bernardino Mountains.

The manhunt focused on Big Bear after Dorner's burned-out pickup was found on a forest road Thursday.
