BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. - Police in 3 states and Mexico are battling freezing temperatures as they continue the search for the former Los Angeles police officer accused of killing 3 people. Despite the freezing temperatures and snow, the manhunt for Christopher Dorner near Southern California's Big Bear Ski Resort carries on.
"We are going to continue searching for him until we either discover he left the mountain or we find him, one of the 2," says San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon.
The last signs of the fired LAPD officer were the tracks leading away from his burning truck found on Thursday.
"We have no evidence at this point," says Sheriff McMahon.
The search isn't isolated to the Big Bear area. It stretches across California, Nevada, Arizona and northern Mexico. It includes the home of Dorner's mother near Irvine, California, where police executed a search warrant. Dorner posted a manifesto online vowing to hunt down police and their families. It names targets Dorner blames for getting him kicked out of the force years ago. Now, 3 people are dead, and the fired cop suggests he won't be taken alive. The manifesto says "Self preservation is no longer important to me. I do not fear death as I died long ago". LAPD Chief Charlie Beck says the former Naval reservist is well trained, and he knows police and military tactics inside and out.
"The LAPD is his specific target, but all law enforcement is targeted," says Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck. "You know, this is a vendetta against all of Southern California law enforcement."

Bonnaroo and then what? More events could follow
May 20, 2013 12:33 GMT
MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) -- The former farm where the Bonnaroo music festival is held may play host to other events as well.
The partnership that puts on the annual music and arts festival in Manchester has steadily upgraded the site, adding a dozen water wells and permanent electrical power.
Festival partner Rick Farman told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/14nuEF5 ) his group is in active discussion with a lot of groups. The Great American Mud Run will be held at the site on July 27 and is expected to draw more than 5,000 participants.
Coffee County Mayor David Pennington said he's curious to see where such a plan could go, saying it could have a huge impact.
This year's Bonnaroo will be held June 13-16. Paul McCartney heads a long list if acts.
