The precise nature of the boson recently discovered at the Large Hadron Collider remains open. In addition to measuring its properties to determine whether it is the quantum of the field that breaks electroweak symmetry and gives mass to the fundamental particles, the search for other Higgs particles predicted by models beyond the standard model (SM), and also models beyond the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM), has intensified. In this report, results are presented from three searches for Higgs-like particles predicted in models beyond the MSSM: a standard model with four generations (SM4), dimuon decays of a Higgs particle in the Next-to-MSSM (NMSSM) framework, and doubly charged Higgs bosons predicted by the minimal type II seesaw model. The analysed samples include up to 5fb - 1 of proton-proton collision data recorded by the CMS detector at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV.
