The manhunt for Christopher Dorner continues despite heavy snowfall in Big Bear, San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said in a press conference Friday morning.

"We're continuing to search...We've put our SWAT guys in the snowcat," McMahon told reporters. "We're going to continue to search in the mountain area. There are lot of cabins up there that are abandoned."

McMahon confirmed that there have been no reports of Dorner coming "into the community." Schools in the area are closed due to inclement weather rather than concerns about protecting children from Dorner.
