Fugitives on the run: RCMP ends underwater search in Manitoba
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police ends its search of a stream in northern Manitoba near Gillam to find two young men suspected of committing three murders in British Columbia.
C ‘re excavations began after the discovery Friday of a damaged aluminum boat on the banks of the Nelson River. A team of divers arrived in Gillam and carried out on Sunday an underwater search “in areas of interest”. But the federal police said Monday that divers were ending their search.
For over a week, 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod have been wanted for the murder of three people last month in British Columbia.
Police announced last Wednesday that it was cutting research in the Gillam area, where the last confirmed sighting of the two men was more than a week ago.
The RCMP also reported Monday that a roadblock was erected in the Sundance area of the Nelson River about 60 kilometers northeast of Gillam. The police refused to provide details on the information that led to this operation.
