Two teenagers who were previously reported as missing have been named as the suspects in the murders of an American woman and her Australian boyfriend in Canada.
The police named Kam McLeod (19) and Bryer Schmegelsky (18) as suspects in the murders of Lucas Fowler (24) and Chynna Deese (23) on Tuesday.
The two teenagers were reported missing on Monday, but the police called them suspects on Tuesday.
It is unclear what the police have moved to name them as suspects, but during a press conference on Tuesday an RMP spokesperson said: & # 39; If you see them, do not act, take no action and call 911 immediately & # 39;
Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky, who were reported missing yesterday, are now named suspects
Shot: Lucas Fowler, the 24-year-old son of an Australian police officer, and his girlfriend Chynna Deese, from Charlotte, North Carolina, were found dead on the Alaska Highway last Monday
Kam and Bryer's car was found 470 kilometers from the bodies of Lucas and Chynna and the incidents were five days apart.
Of the two missing boys, police spokeswoman Dawn Roberts said: & # 39; 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 mobile 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.
Tourists flood the British Columbia hotspots at this time of the year, such as Banff and Jasper for hiking and hot springs adventures.
Who exactly killed Fowler and Deese remains a mystery, in which a witness claims that the couple had a & # 39; heated exchange & # 39; had seen with a bearded man.
The beaten up Chevrolet minibus of the couple was seized by the police and was first pictured earlier today today with a blown rear window.
The last moments of the witnesses from Fowler and Deese have come forward to talk about their last encounters with the tragic couple.
Good Samaritans Sandra Broughton and her husband Curtis claimed to have a fateful meeting with the young lovers last Sunday.

They went home along the Alaska Highway after a visit to Liard Hot Springs on Sunday at 3:20 pm when they saw Mr Fowler and Mrs. Deese's bus break on the side of the road.
Mr. Broughton, a mechanic, suspected they needed help and stopped. He said the couple relaxed on fold-away seats by the side of the road and & # 39; happy and smiling & # 39; was, despite the circumstances.
& # 39; They were eating lunch or eating a little when we stopped. & # 39;
Broughton soon realized that the Australian had everything under control.
& # 39; He seemed as if he had diagnosed everything correctly, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; The vehicle was flooded and they wanted to try to get it going again until they could get the parts they needed. & # 39;
The Broughtons got back in their car and drove home.
Days later they heard what had happened to them on the news.
Mrs. Broughton told reporters: & # 39; We were like angels offering help because they are the good in the world, but unfortunately they also met the worst and humanity. & # 39;
Another eyewitness has also come forward and claims that the young travelers have a & # 39; heated exchange with a bearded man & # 39; have seen.
Road worker Alanda Hull said the couple was standing next to their van and seemed to be bothered by the man she saw in the middle of the road.
& # 39; If you just get a bad feeling, and that's what I had, you just don't quit & # 39 ;, Hull said to the Nine Network.
The disappearance of the two men comes a week after Lucas Fowler, 24, from New South Wales, and Chynna Deese, 23, from North Carolina, on the remote Alaska Highway of the county were shot.

Fowler, son of police inspector Stephen Fowler from New South Wales, and Deese, met two years ago in a hostel in Croatia.
They fell in love and traveled through Canada as part of the latest chapter in their globetrotting adventure.
Since 2017, Fowler has traveled from northern Sydney to locations such as Myanmar, Japan, Hungary, Spain, South America and Canada.
Before he went abroad, he played soccer with the Asquith Soccer Club and lived in Ku-ring-gai.
One of his friends paid tribute this week to the & # 39; friendliest, funniest, sweetest, most carefree, and happy person I have ever met in my life & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Whatever was the matter, you would just walk in with a beer in your hand, smile and say & # 39; she is right & # 39;. & # 39;
His family flew to Canada to take his body home. Two NSW investigators are also participating in the investigation.

Meanwhile, the Deeses have told the media that they fear the assassin will strike again.
& # 39; I don't think it's a serial killer, & # 39; said Mrs. Deese's father, Dwayne, to the Charlotte Observer.
& # 39; I am thinking of someone who has previously been convicted of violent crimes, someone who uses drugs.
& # 39; That fits better in the profile.
& # 39; What worries us is that the person is still free and has a head start.
& # 39; This is going to happen again.
& # 39; There must be some sort of warning system for tourists. & # 39;
