BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - Police spent all night searching the snowy mountains of Southern California but didn't find the former Los Angeles officer accused of carrying out a killing spree because he felt he was unfairly fired from his job.
    
Authorities plan a mid-morning update in Big Bear Lake, where Christopher Dorner's torched pickup was found Thursday.
    
Local ski areas are open Friday but schools are closed because of the manhunt.
    
San Diego County sheriff's deputies spent the night surrounding and searching a rural home after a hoaxer reported Dorner was there. It tied up 16 deputies.
    
Dorner is accused of killing his lawyer's daughter and her fiance last weekend and shooting at police officers Thursday, killing one and critically wounding another.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The manhunt for a disgruntled former Los Angeles police officer wanted in three killings is expanding.
    
A U.S. Marshals Service official says the search for Christopher Dorner has spread from California to Nevada, Arizona and Mexico.
    
The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the official was not authorized to comment publicly on the investigation.
    
Dorner is suspected of killing a former police captain's daughter, her fiance and a Riverside officer. He's also suspected of wounding two other officers.

PREVIOUS STORY:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say officers guarding a target in an ex-officer's manifesto shot and wounded multiple people in Torrance who were in a pickup.
    
LA police Lt. Andrew Neiman says the officers were deployed in response to Christopher Dorner's written threats to department officials in a rambling 14-page manifesto.
    
Authorities say Dorner has implicated himself in the killing of two people in Irvine over the weekend. He's also the suspect in the overnight killing of a police officer and critical wounding of another cop.
    
Police did not say how seriously the people in Torrance were injured.
