SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Navy says a former Los Angeles policeman sought for at least three killings stayed on a San Diego base several days ago but a lockdown at the facility has been lifted.

Navy spokesmen say someone reported seeing a man resembling Christopher Dorner on Thursday morning at Naval Base Point Loma. The base was sealed and searched for several hours.

Cmdr. Brad Fagan says Dorner checked into a base hotel on Tuesday but left the next day and isn't there now. Fagan says Dorner, a reserve lieutenant, left the Navy with an honorable discharge on Friday and may still carry military ID.

Authorities in several states are hunting Dorner, who's believed to have killed an Irvine couple Sunday and a Riverside police officer Thursday morning.
