Camping gear found in ex-cop's truck

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say camping gear was found along with weapons inside the burned-out truck belonging to Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings who is the subject of a manhunt in Southern California's snow-covered mountains.

Los Angeles police Sgt. Rudy Lopez said Sunday that the truck was so charred that investigators couldn't be more specific about the nature of its contents.

SWAT teams with air support and bloodhounds fanned out for the fourth day to search for Dorner, who has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career.

Authorities planned a 1 p.m. news conference to announce a reward for information leading to the arrest of 33-year-old fugitive.

Chief Charlie Beck has ordered a review of the 2007 disciplinary case that led to Dorner's dismissal.
