Mounties are asking all Canadians to be on the lookout for two suspects, in connection with a murder case. The RCMP are going door-to-door in Gillam over the weekend, but officers acknowledge the possibility Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky may already have moved on. They're wanted in connection with the death of two campers in northern B.C.
During yesterday's update, officers acknowledged there have been no new sightings of the suspects, and no new information that would indicate that the suspects have fled the area. However, investigators remain open to the possibility and continue to ask anyone who may have inadvertently provided assistance to the suspects to come forward and contact police.
In addition, the RCMP media release said officers have started to canvass every home and building in the Gillam area, as well as Fox Lake Cree Nation. The canvass began early Saturday morning, and it is expected to last for another 48 hours.
Along with the canvass, Mounties say more than 100 empty homes have been thoroughly searched in the Town of Gillam. Officers are also searching large abandoned buildings, like the Keewatinohk Converter Station Camp near Gillam, which has over 600 rooms.
Police add the Canadian Armed Forces arrived in Gillam earlier today to assist with the aerial search.
"It is critical that all Canadians remain vigilant for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky. If they are spotted, do not approach, call 9-1-1 or your local police immediately," it says in the media release issued yesterday.
