Ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner has been on the run for more than 24-hours, and while officials suspect he's up in the Big Bear area, and a snow storm there is complicating the search.

The San Bernardino County sheriff held a press conference this morning saying that the search for Dorner continues. Yesterday afternoon his burned out pickup truck was identified by police near the Big Bear resort area. Nearby, they found tracks in the snow. 

Police spent all night searching the mountains but have not yet been successful. So with the clock ticking and weather not on your side, how can authorities find him?
