Deputies and other investigators are searching a remote area of Bridger-Teton National Forest near Pacific Creek for a man who is wanted for a triple murder in Idaho.

Gerald Michael Bullinger is a suspect in a triple murder that happened in Caldwell, Idaho, in early June, police said.

Police believe he may be in Teton County because a car registered to one of the victims was found abandoned in the Pacific Creek Campground, which is on the Bridger-Teton near the Grand Teton National Park boundary.

There was a national "be on the lookout" notice for the car, which was reported to local authorities July 12, according to Teton County sheriff's Lt. Matt Carr.

Teton County deputies, National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Wyoming Game and Fish and Teton County Emergency Management personnel are involved in the search, according to a press release from the Teton County Sheriff's Office.

"All of the agencies are working in cooperation to patrol the area in search of the suspect," the release stated, "including the use of cadaver dogs."

Bullinger is believed to be "armed and possibly dangerous," the release stated.

If you see the suspect or have other information, you're encouraged to call 911.

If he's been "living in the woods" he might now be quite a bit thinner.

lots of grizz up there. Hopefully he'll be eaten slowly.
