Eric Frein has not yet been found, but officials have stumbled across a handwritten note the Pennsylvania police barracks shooter allegedly penned, law enforcement sources told CNN Monday.

It's not clear whether Frein, a 31-year-old self-taught survivalist, left the note intentionally or on accident, but it reportedly details the Sept. 12 attack on the Blooming Grove barracks that killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson and injured another trooper, as well as the gunman's escape. It does not, however, shed any light on a possible motive for the shooting spree.

Pennsylvania state police officials declined to comment on any aspect of the letter Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

"As previously stated, I am not commenting on evidence found unless it poses a threat to the community," Pennsylvania state trooper spokesman Tom Kelly said in a statement. "I understand some networks are reporting information obtained through sources. This is the only official source, and I cannot confirm anything reported by 'sources.'"

Search teams have been combing the Pennsylvania wilderness near the border of Pike and Monroe counties in a manhunt to find Frein ever since the ambush, and they hope the weather will soon deliver a break in the case. The dropping temperatures and falling leaves should make air surveillance easier, Edward J. Hanko, the special agent in charge of the Philadelphia division of the FBI, told the Inquirer.

"The cold will help us," Hanko said. "He's out there, and he's not going to be starting fires to keep warm."

So far, the search for Frein has turned up two pipe bombs, ammunition, soiled diapers, Serbian cigarettes, Ramen noodles, and clothing.
