SWAT Teams, Feds And Local Police Continue Search For Man In Killing

Posted: Updated:

PETROLIA, Calif. (AP) - SWAT teams from three counties and a team from the California Department of Corrections, as well as federal law enforcement officials and local police have joined the hunt for a Northern California man wanted in the killing of his wife and two young daughters.
    
Two helicopters and an armored vehicle are helping search teams in a rugged wilderness area with poor roads and limited access along California's remote North Coast.
    
Humboldt County sheriff's office says they are looking for Shane Franklin Miller. The 45-year-old is suspected of slaying his family Tuesday night in the rural community of Shingletown. Miller is considered armed and extremely dangerous. Officials say he grew up in the area and knows the thick forests of the region very well.
    
Area residents are being asked to report any break-ins or other unusual activities. They are also being asked to stay inside once night falls and to keep their doors locked.
