BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Property records show that the mother of a former Los Angeles police officer who's the target of a manhunt on a Southern California mountain owns a parcel of land there.

San Bernardino County records show the 2-acre undeveloped parcel, about 35 miles west of Big Bear Lake, is under the name of Christopher Dorner's mother, Nancy.

County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Bachman says authorities are aware of the land and have visited it several times.

She says there's been no sign of Dorner in the area.

Dorner is suspected of going on a rampage to get back at those he blamed for ending his police career.

A former LAPD captain's daughter and her fiance were killed last weekend. A pair of shootings Thursday killed one officer and wounded two others.
