PETROLIA, Calif. (AP) - Officials say the search for a man suspected of killing his wife and their two young daughters continues, but is being scaled back.

Humboldt County Sheriff's Lt. Wayne Hanson told the Times-Standard on Friday that with no new leads or information to report, the other dozen outside agencies that had joined the manhunt for Shane Miller have returned to their jurisdictions.

Authorities have been searching for Miller in the Petrolia area of the county after his family was discovered slain on May 7 at their home in Shasta County, about 200 miles away.

Deputies will still continue road patrols for the next several days, but the command post in Petrolia has been shut down.

Humboldt County Sheriff Mike Downey said at a community meeting Wednesday that Miller has most likely killed himself or left the area.
