"King Range to remain closed until May 31 as manhunt continues:
Speaking from the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office temporary command center at the Petrolia Volunteer Fire Department, Lt. George Cavinta said this morning that it appears the Bureau of Land Management will be maintaining the closure of the King Range National Conservation Area until May 31 for public safety reasons.
The Bureau of Land Management's Arcata Field Office posted online Thursday evening that the conservation area, including the Lost Coast Trail, would be closed until further notice as the search for triple homicide suspect Shane Miller continued in the Mattole Valley area. Law enforcement officials continue to search the area today, but have yet to find any further evidence of the wanted man.
"The search for triple homicide suspect Shane Miller continues this morning. Efforts are a continuation of yesterday’s tactics, consisting of foot searches in the King Range trails and door to door searches of residences and cabins in the Petrolia, Honeydew and Shelter Cove communities. As a reminder there is a 5:00 PM community meeting scheduled at the Honeydew School. The King Range Conservation Area remains temporarily closed to all recreational activities."
