PETROLIA, Calif. -

The search for Shane Miller continues Tuesday in the King Range National Conservation Area as over 70 law enforcement officers continue to search the Mattole Valley.

Miller is suspected of gunning down his wife and two young daughters in their Shingletown home last week. Miller's wife, Sandy Miller, was 34 years old. His daughter, Shelby, was eight years old and his daughter, Shasta, was four.

On Monday, the Shasta County Sheriff's Office revealed that many pieces of evidence have been collected and processed in the Miller homicide case, including DNA evidence.

Miller's car was found near Mattole Road in Humboldt County last Wednesday and law enforcement believes the triple homicide suspect could be in hiding.

All schools remain open with a law enforcement presence near by. There are fixed roadway check points north and south of the search area remain in place. Officers are also going door to door, speaking with residents and searching numerous outbuildings and unoccupied cabins.

There remains a staffing level of over 70 law enforcement officers in the Petrolia/King Range area.

Meanwhile in Shasta County, where the crime occurred, Shasta County deputies and U.S. Marshals continue to interview friends and relatives.

A community meeting was held on Sunday at the Petrolia Community Center to address questions and concerns. A second community meeting is scheduled at the Honeydew School on Wed., May 15 at 5 p.m.

The King Range Conservation Area remains closed until further notice.

Miller is a 45-year-old white male. He is 5'10", weighs 200 lbs. and has blue eyes and red hair. He is believed to be armed and dangerous. If you see Miller, call 9-11.
