San Bernardino Sheriff Department confirmed that the car of Christopher Dorner was found deserted and in flames on the side of Bear Mountain, California this afternoon—with tracks in the snow leading away form the vehicle. During a press conference the San Bernardino Sheriff said at that the tracks did not lead to him.

Personnel for several departments and team dogs continued to search the area Big Bear Lake. About 80 miles of Los Angeles, California . Including door-to-door searches of cabins located there, officials said

“He could be anywhere at this point, and that’s why we’re searching door to door,” San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said.

The focus of the intensive, expansive manhunt is Christopher Jordan Dorner, a 270-pound former Navy lieutenant who has professed his venom against LAPD officers he claimed ruined his life by forcing him out of his dream job.

Dorner blames one retired officer for bungling his appeal to get his job back in an 11-page manifesto, in which he also complained of mistreatment by the LAPD. In that letter — provided to CNN by an LAPD source — he vowed to violently target police officers and their families, whoever and wherever they are.
“I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty,” Dorner wrote.
“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours.”

Dorner was believed to have killed a police officer and injure two other eartly this morning in Riverside, California. He is also accused of killing two civilians on Sunday after releasing a scathing “manifesto” alleging grievances committed by the police department while he worked for it and warning of coming violence toward cops.

“My opinion of the suspect is unprintable,” said Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz, hours after one of his officers was killed. “The manifesto, I think, speaks for itself (as) evidence of a depraved and abandoned mind and heart.”
The violence, as well as Dorner’s background as a police officer and expert marksman, left police on edge around Southern California.
According the San Diego police have reported that a citizen found ID wallet containing a badge and ID belongings.

Dorner complained that Quan and others did not fairly represent him at the review hearing.
“Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over. Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family.
“There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep,” he wrote, referring to Quan and several others.
“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours,” he added. Quan apparently served as Dorner’s representative, according to the manifesto.
“He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name,” Dorner wrote of Quan. “He works for the department, period.”
“His job is to protect the department from civil lawsuits being filed and their best interest which is the almighty dollar. His loyalty is to the department, not his client.”
In the document, he threatens violence against other police officers.
