Authorities in a Southern California ski resort town are searching more than 30 square miles day and night for a fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer charged with murdering an officer and accused of killing two others last week.

Jodi Miller, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, said Monday there are 30 deputies canvasing the Big Bear area and checking on roughly 600 cabins in the manhunt for 33-year-old Christopher Dorner.

Dorner's burned-out truck was found late last week in the mountain resort with weapons and camping gear inside.

Prosecutors filed a murder charge against Dorner that could bring the death penalty in the killing of a Riverside police officer. He was charged with the attempted murder of three other officers.

Miller said authorities will continue to search the Big Bear area until Dorner is found or there's evidence he's there.
