RCMP complete search of river near Gillam, Man., for murder suspects

Highway 29

Canadian police hunting two teens over the murder of an Australian man and his USA girlfriend have revealed they have found a number of clues "directly linked to the suspects".

Police said the items were found on the shoreline of the Nelson River on August 2, leading to a subsequent search by police divers that did not find any other relevant items.

On the same day, a damaged boat was found along the same river, which prompted an immediate response by the RCMP's Underwater Recovery Team.

Police say a roadblock has been put in place in the Sundance, Man., area for other search efforts, but they declined to provide further details.

The area has been the focus for more than a week in the hunt for Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and Kam McLeod, 19, who are suspects in the killings of three people last month in northern B.C.

Bryer Schemegelsky and Kam McLeod are also suspects in the shooting deaths of American Chynna Deese and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler.

While photos of the two teens have been released, police say that the pair may have altered their appearance.

The pair were last spotted in Gillam, Man., which is about 740 km north of Winnipeg, on July 22.

Four days later, the body of Vancouver resident Leonard Dyck, 64, a sessional lecturer at the University of British Columbia's botany department was discovered on a road near Dease Lake, about 500 kilometres southwest of the hot springs.
