Oregon and California law enforcement all got the message about a manhunt for a cop-killer on the run.

Police have found the suspects truck abandoned and burned near Bear Lake in California. Still no sight of the alleged killer.

What's was really disturbing to police this morning, as developments came through, the story about Christopher Dorner changed. A Facebook post by Dorner targeted specific police officers within the L.A.P.D. Where he spent time as an officer but eventually fired in 2008. Dorner was also in the navy and said to be an expert in handling a pistol.

Police say when you add it all up- the military and police training, man on the loose with a motive. there could a chance that he would make his way up the I-5 corridor, possibly to Northern Calif, or Southern Ore.
Tonight police are investigating in several states, around here the concern continues until the man is caught.
