A highway patrol officer guards a roadblock on Highway 38 near Angeles Oaks during a standoff with fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner, near San Bernardino, California on February 12, 2013. Nobody has yet been found in a burnt-out US mountain cabin where Dorner was believed to have barricaded himself after a six-day manhunt, a police spokesman said. Media reports that a body had been found in the cabin near Big Bear, east of Los Angeles, and identified as Dorner's were false, said Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokesman Andrew Smith.
