LAS VEGAS—A former Los Angeles police officer wanted in three killings in Southern California was not found when authorities served a warrant at his Las Vegas-area home Thursday, an FBI spokesman said.

Agent Patrick Turner said he could not immediately disclose whether other evidence has been found in Christopher Dorner's two-story home nine miles southwest of the Las Vegas Strip.

SWAT teams from the FBI and local police agencies sealed off the neighborhood before entering the beige stucco home shortly after 4 p.m.

Dorner is suspected of killing a couple over the weekend in Orange County and killing a police officer early Thursday in Riverside.

A manhunt in three states and Mexico is now focusing in Big Bear Lake, about 200 miles west of Las Vegas. That's where police found Dorner's burned-out pickup truck.

Law enforcement officers remained at Dorner's Las Vegas home after the initial search. As night fell, agents wearing FBI jackets hauled boxes of items out of the house and loaded them in a truck under the watchful eyes of armed officers.

Onlookers were kept about three houses away.
