BOISE — Law enforcement officials say they have located the vehicle wanted in connection with the deaths of three women near a rural southwestern Idaho farmhouse.

Canyon County chief deputy Marv Dashiell announced Monday that authorities found the white 2007 Ford Focus in a remote campground northwest of Moran, Wyoming, near the border of Grand Teton National Park in Bridger-Teton National Forest.

A nationwide manhunt is underway for 60-year-old Gerald "Mike" Bullinger. He is charged with failing to report the deaths, and police say Bullinger is a "person of interest" in the homicide investigation.

A sheriff's deputy found the badly decomposed body of Bullinger's wife, Cheryl Baker, 56, of Ogden, and the bodies of a teenager and another adult woman on June 19 in a shed on property in Caldwell, Idaho, that belonged to Baker and Bullinger. Each of the victims died of a single gunshot wound.

Investigators are still working to identify the other two victims.
