RCMP Royal Canadian Mounted Police

WINNIPEG – The RCMP are continuing their efforts to find Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky.

This update was provided by the Manitoba RCMP:

There have been no new sightings of the suspects and no new information that would indicate that the suspects have fled the area. However, our 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.

RCMP officers have started to canvass every home and building in the Gillam area as well as Fox Lake Cree Nation. The canvass began earlier this morning and is expected to last for another 48 hours.

In addition to the canvass, over 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.

Following a request from the RCMP, assets from 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
