Police say they are "confident" they have found the bodies of Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, who were wanted over the murders of Sydney man Lucas Fowler, his American girlfriend Chynna Deese and university lecturer Leonard Dyck.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Assistant Commissioner Jane MacLatchy said the bodies believed to be the wanted teens were found in Manitoba, 1 kilometre from where "several items directly linked" to the fugitives were found a day earlier, and 8 kilometres from where a grey Toyota RAV4 they were known to have been driving was found in flames on a highway.

Mr McLeod and Mr Schmegelsky were first reported missing on July 19 after their Dodge pickup truck was found in flames near Dease Lake, British Columbia, 2 kilometres from where a body — later identified as Mr Dyck, 64 — was found.

Days later, the RCMP said the two teenagers were considered suspects in the murders of Ms Deese and Mr Fowler, which took place 500 kilometres away from where Mr Dyck was found, near Liard Hot Spring.
