Over the last 48 hours, the RCMP has received over 80 tips about these suspects.  If they are spotted, do not approach, call 9-1-1 or your local police immediately.

The search for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky near Gillam started on Monday after their vehicle was found on fire.  Since then the RCMP have increased their presence in the community with SWAT vehicles and check stops.

On Tuesday the RCMP named McLeod and Schmegelsky as suspects in the double homicide of Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese.  Their bodies were found 20km south of Liard River Hot Springs along the Alaska Highway on July 15, 2019.
