RCMP have issued a warning to the public Tuesday to be on the lookout for two teens from Port Alberni believed to be involved in the double homicide of Chynna Noelle Deese, 24, and Lucas Robertson Fowler, 23 and a suspicious death in northern B.C.

"Given these latest developments, Kam and Bryer are no longer consider missing," the RCMP media release said.

"RCMP are considering Kam McLeod (19) and Bryer Schmegelsky (18) as suspects in the Dease Lake suspicious death investigation and the double homicide of Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese."  

RCMP said for the past few days investigators have been focussing on locating Kam and Bryer given that their vehicle and camper had been located on fire and the two were missing.

"We have also been working to identify a man who was discovered deceased about (two) kilometres south of the vehicle fire at a Highway pullout," the release said.

RCMP said investigators have also been able to confirm that Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky have left British Columbia and have been spotted in northern Saskatchewan.

"We believe they are likely continuing to travel, though we don’t have a possible destination," RCMP said. "They were seen driving a grey 2011 Toyota Rav 4."

RCMP is asking the public that if you spot Kam Mclead or Bryer Schmegelsky to consider them as dangerous - take no actions – do not approach – and call 911 immediately.

  • 6 foot 4
  • Approximately 169 pounds
