Manhunt for Shane Miller Day 4

May 11, 2013 10:59 PM

SWAT teams from three counties, federal law enforcement officials and local police - on the ground and in the air - are joining the hunt for a Northern California man wanted in the killing of his wife and two young daughters.

Humboldt County Lt. Wayne Hanson, a spokesman for the department, says the extra help - which includes two helicopters and an armored vehicle - comes as law enforcement officials continue Saturday to search through the rugged terrain of California's remote North Coast for Shane Franklin Miller.

The 45-year-old Miller is suspected of slaying his family Tuesday night in the rural community of Shingletown, then fleeing to Humboldt County.

Authorities say Miller - who is considered armed and extremely dangerous - grew up in the area and knows the thick forests of the region very well.
