(CNN) — Kidnapping and murder suspect James DiMaggio, sought in a national manhunt, may be armed with improvised explosives or may have rigged his car with them, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said.
DiMaggio, 40, is suspected of kidnapping Hannah Anderson, 16, and possibly her brother Ethan, 8, and of killing their mother in a fire.
Authorities believe DiMaggio is driving a blue Nissan Versa, California license plate 6WCU986. If anyone sees it, they are urged to contact the Washington State patrol in Tacoma at 253-538-3240 or to call 911.
A vehicle related to the investigation was spotted Wednesday in southern Oregon near Lakeview at 2 p.m., according to Oregon State Police.
“The suspect is now believed to be possibly traveling to Canada,” according to the Washington alert.
