Police do not know Dorner’s whereabouts, but his last address was in La Palma, Calif., and they are seeking the public’s help in finding him, the chief said.Dorner is expected to be armed and dangerous, and Maggard encouraged anyone who sees him to immediately call 911. Police said he may be driving a blue, 2005 Nissan Titan pickup truck.The chief said the LAPD and FBI are assisting in the search.Quan, an assistant women’s basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton, is the daughter of a former LAPD captain, Randal Quan, who retired in 2002 and later worked as chief of police at Cal Poly, Pomona.

Lawrence, her fiancé, was a public safety officer at the University of Southern California.
