A Canadian police officer investigating the murders of an American tourist and revealing to her Australian boyfriend why the two baby suspects aren't just & # 39; a few teenagers & # 39; to be.
The Australian Lucas Fowler (24) and the American Chynna Deese (23) were found dead on Monday, July 15 after their van broke down on the Alaska Highway in British Columbia.
The police are now looking for Canadian Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, about the brutal murder of the couple.
The pair was initially reported missing on Friday after their truck was found near another corpse and was supposed to be dead.
But Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Janelle Shoihet confirmed that the two & # 39; in fact live and the last two provinces here have seen ours & # 39 ;.
Although she could not provide details about the ongoing investigation, she revealed that & # 39;suspicious things about the truck and trailer and the man's death. & # 39;
& # 39; We truly believe they are on the way and we are asking all of Canada and the whole world to help us find Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky. & # 39;

& # 39; We can tell you that they are from a city, a small town on Vancouver Island, on the west coast of British Columbia here in Canada.
The revelation comes after Mrs. Deese's mother spoke about her heartache for losing her daughter
The mother of an American tourist who was murdered alongside her Australian friend spoke about her heartache about losing her daughter.
Deese and Fowler were only recently reunited on a bison and cattle ranch, where Lucas had worked as a general ranch hand when they set out on their ill-fated journey to Alaska.
Chynna & # 39; s mother Sheila waited for her daughter's return on July 31.
The date was circled on her calendar at her home in North Carolina. She now has the task of planning her guts instead.

Sheila was first introduced to Lucas last year during Christmas after the couple met in a hostel in Croatia.
He had belonged & # 39; fit & # 39; and immediately felt part of the family, Sheila said ABC.
& # 39; I knew they were so in love and the next step was to plan a wedding instead of a life party. I knew they would be forever, & she said.
Chynna had only arrived six days before their trip at the Swiss-style cottage in Canada.
The couple had spent the last few days completing daily tasks, including branding and tagging of calves, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, shown above in newly released photos, are now considered suspects in the murders of an American woman and Australian backpacker. They are shown above on a photo that is believed to have been taken in Saskatchewan

& # 39; They were so in love and he was so looking forward to seeing her. He had not seen Chynna since April, & said ranch owner Christophe Weder.
& # 39; He was the sweetest boy who had found the love of his life. & # 39;
While family and friends begin to mourn their loss, the authorities are still hunting for the baby-faced duo suspected of murder.
Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, are wanted for the brutal murder of the couple.
McLeod and Schmegelsky went missing on Friday after their truck was burned at a third corpse.
Bryer Schmegelsky & # 39; s father As early as Monday, CBC said that they & # 39; good boys on an adventure & # 39; before the couple were named as suspects on Tuesday.
Since then, however, he has revealed that the pair has spent the last two years & # 39; training in war & # 39; had spent in the forest.
He also admitted to the local news channel CHEK News that his son received a replica gun from Airsoft as a gift years earlier.
& # 39; My son is like him, they are huge in video games – all kids are – and two Christmas ago he asked me for an Airsoft gun, which is a replica gun, right?
& # 39; So he told me: & # 39; Well me and the boys, we want to go into the woods and go to war & # 39 ;, right?

& # 39; So knowing that they are both completely interested in it, if there was any threat they would have done what they had trained themselves and would have camouflaged themselves in the forest. & # 39;
Mr. Schmegelsky did not believe that the couple was responsible for the murders. He said Kam and Bryer were probably in the wrong place at the wrong time and fled for safety.
The boys – both 6ft4 – are supposed to be in Saskatchewan, 1600 km from where the young couple's bodies were found, and are thought to be dangerous.
The couple, who are primary school friends, left Vancouver Island for Whitehorse looking for work somewhere before the murders.
They stopped communicating with their families a few days ago.

It is unclear what the police have moved to name them as suspects.
During a press conference on Tuesday, a police spokesperson said: & # 39; If you see them, don't come any closer, take no action and call 911 immediately. & # 39;
The teen's car was found 470 kilometers from the murdered couple.
It was burned out and abandoned.
Another body was found 2 km from their vehicle, but that person has not yet been named.

The police will also not reveal whether that man was killed or how he died, but they say that the teenagers are wanted because of his death.
On Monday, when they still considered them missing, police spokeswoman Dawn Roberts said about the teenagers: & Kam and Bryer have been in regular contact with family and friends over the past week and it is possible that they are now in an area without cell coverage.
& # 39; However, we have found their vehicle and were unable to find either at this time.
& # 39; We ask Kam or Bryer to contact the police immediately and let us know you're okay. & # 39;
A witness claimed last Sunday Mr. Fowler and Mrs. Deese a & # 39; heated exchange & # 39; having given with a bearded man.
On July 13 at about 7.30 p.m. the couple filled their blue van at a gas station and were seen embracing on CCTV images
It led the police to release a drawing of the man hoping to track him down.
The police refused to share details about what evidence – if any – they had to link the teenagers to the crime scene.
They have already been shot at by Mrs. Deese's family for their investigation.
Her father told The Charlotte Observer that the killer was a & # 39; ahead & # 39; because the police were so slow.
& # 39; I don't think it's a serial killer. I am thinking of someone who has previously been convicted of violent crimes, someone who uses drugs. That fits better in the profile.
& # 39; What worries us is that the person is still free and has a head start. This is going to happen again.
& # 39; There must be some sort of warning system for tourists & # 39 ;, he told The Charlotte Observer last week.
& # 39; It's the worst love story ever & # 39 ;: Lucas Fowler's father falls apart talking about the double murder
Mr. Fowler's father, Stephen, a senior NSW police officer, spoke to the media at a press conference in Canada on Monday.
He said the couple were beautiful and loved each other and that their deaths had torn two families apart.
Speaking of his son's journey, he said: & he came to Canada and planned a trip in a van with Chynna.
& # 39; It is a love story that has ended tragically. It is the worst love story ever.
& # 39; We have two young people who had everything that was killed. & # 39;
& # 39; I may be an experienced police officer, but today I stand here as the father of a murder victim, & # 39; said Fowler.
& # 39; Nothing is preparing my family for what we are going through now. & # 39;
& # 39; We are just distraught & # 39 ;.

Journey of a lifetime: on Saturday evening, around 7.30 p.m., the couple filled their blue van at a gas station and were hugged on camera images
Images of Mr Fowler and Mrs Deese appeared on Tuesday their blue van at a gas station in Fort Nelson, two days before they were found dead.
The heartbreaking video had Mrs. Deese clean the windows of the van while Mr Fowler filled the tank.
Mrs. Deese put down the window cleaner and sat by the pumps before her boyfriend tickled her belly and put his arms around her.
The couple then went inside to pay, got back in their van and continued their journey of a lifetime.
But at some point between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning, the couple were brutally murdered on the side of the road.
