*** Update on manhunt for Dorner *** possible sighting, dog on trail, more: [View all]

(please note, writing this as it comes in, will post when there is enough to fully post about.) Search abandoned at this point except one cat heading to damn before returning -- as I was formatting this here they picked up some tracks, might be more to come....tracks heading west, see last entry

--White ford Taurus, tracks leading from it in the snow.

--Suspect wearing green (hooded I believe, a little garbled) jacket according to eye witness.

--Picking up tracking dog, en route to scene.

--One team at site of tracks, asking about whether to wait for backup.

(keep in mind there are multiple things going on across the scanner, so piecing it together - cars stuck in
snow, accidents, etc)


--Dog is now tracking, possible scent trail (7:09p est)

--Have snow cat take to next point marked (I think this is second dog, they had to pick one up earlier in snow
cat since officer was stuck) (7:11p est)

--Other officers a few minutes out from joining up (7:16p est)

--Officers blaring horn 3 times so others know they are there (7:30p est)

--Tracks going in a westerly direction, sending fresh officers up to relieve them soon with a dog (7:48p est)

(7:55p est Note - on twitter people saying search will resume in morning, but police are, as noted above, on
a trail and sending fresh officers to it. Also on twitter people saying tracks are not his - but those are
earlier tracks which I joked about in an earlier thread, not these ones)


--Sending 4 man and 6 man snow cat to camp site, dog has lost scent, lost visible track (8:08p est)

--Set second dog free at camp when he arrives, cedar lake camp - running against the clock now (8:09p est)

--Asked how everyone is holding up, believe they are half mile from cedar lake (rd) campground, will continue
walking in case something pops up. Wants them to wait to walk until cat gets there, but notes he has two cats
there. Keep themselves where they are and use cat for shelter till others arrive.

--How close are you? Maybe 15 minutes at most to get to them. They need to get cat down there for fuel, sending
empty 6 passenger to him (8:11p est)

On maps.google.com search on: camp near Cedar Lake Road, Big Bear Lake, CA

--Sending out bearcats to several locations, blvd & skyline, the dam, and one other location (a little garbled)
for containment
(8:17p est)

--Another officer heading to cedar lake, pulling up now to pick him up (8:19p est)

--You start searching camp, getting snow cat out of there as almost out of fuel. Roger that, we are here and
starting to search, looking for tracks (8:21p est)

--Out of fuel, at end of road. Snow is deep. Will get you out of there. What about 2nd dog? Dog is out of scent
and we are out of (broke up). (8:24p est)

--Did you 22 (10-22 Disregard last assignment) us? We didn't copy earlier. Negative. Ok, we are still in route
(8:27p est)

--Now they are wanting to 10-19 (basically call it off) everyone. Officers at camp ground want 25 minutes to clear
camp ground (8:27p est)

10-19 Return(ing) to station http://www.radiolabs.com/police-codes.html

--When in this area earlier did you see lights on in cabin? Door on cabin is ajar (lots of static) (8:32p est)
Your are breaking up, if you can call us on phone and give status.

--Checking dam site with bearcat then will 10-19. Do you have enough fuel to get back here? Yes, that's affirm (8:39p est)

--Will come back in morning with 2nd dog, he didn't make it to final area. (8:40p est)

** Basically everyone is 10-19'ing at this point (8:42p est)

--8:46p est - Tracks picked up near 'tulip'

-- Unit (?) we are 100 feet behind you, what do you want us to check? start checking street to west, looks like they are going west.
