BUFFALO, N.Y. - Police say they've issued a nationwide alert to law enforcement agencies for a Buffalo, N.Y., trauma surgeon sought in connection with the hospital shooting death of his ex-girlfriend.

Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda said Thursday that authorities don't believe 49-year-old Timothy Jorden crossed the border into neighboring Ontario.

He says all vehicles registered to the former U.S. Army weapons specialist have been accounted for as police continue to search for him.

The search began Wednesday morning when 33-year-old Jacqueline Wisniewski was found shot to death in a stairwell at the Erie County Medical Center, where she and Jorden both worked.

Earlier Thursday, police dogs searched the ravine near Jorden's luxury lakeshore home. A neighbor had reported he heard a gunshot the day before.
