Manhunt for Eric Frein Continues as Investigators Focus on Abandoned Hotel

Authorities pursuing a survivalist accused of the fatal ambush at a state police barracks in Pennsylvania are looking for him in an abandoned hotel in the Pocono Mountains.

A state police spokesman says trackers were sent Friday morning to the Buck Hill Inn, close to the main search area in Barrett Township.

Trooper Tom Kelly says 31-year-old Eric Frein was known to visit the hotel when it was open. The 400-room hotel, built more than a century ago, has been closed since 1991.

However, there have been no sightings of the suspect near Buck Hill Inn, according to investigators.

Frein is accused of opening fire two weeks ago outside the Blooming Grove barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania, killing one trooper and injuring a second. He's eluded a massive manhunt that includes hundreds of law enforcement officials.
