"On Wednesday, the U.S. Forest Service issued an emergency order to close the Piute Mountains, a range in the Mojave Desert, as teams of deputies and SWAT officers searched for the suspected killer.

All forest land and trails in the Piute Mountains and roads leading into the wilderness were closed. The Pacific Crest Trail also was closed from California 58 to Bird Springs Pass until further notice.

Authorities think the gunman hiked over the Piute Mountains, possibly using the Pacific Crest Trail, to get to Weldon, 10 miles away, after kidnapping three men July 28."
