Hoax call but no sign of ex-cop wanted in killings

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.
