UPDATE: Vehicle spotted in Saskatchewan not connected to 3 B.C. deaths, RCMP say

RCMP had sent out a crime alert asking people to call 911 if they see Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18

A vehicle spotted in Saskatchewan on Wednesday and thought be driven by two Port Alberni teens wanted for three deaths in northern B.C. is in fact unrelated to that investigation, RCMP say.

In a crime alert sent earlier on Wednesday, Mounties had said the Yorkton detachment had received reports of a sighting of Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, at about 10:15 a.m. local time.

The two are suspects in the double homicide of a young couple, Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese, and in the suspicious death of an unidentified man, in northern B.C.

The most recent confirmed sighting of McLeod and Schmegelsky was on Tuesday in the Gillam area in northern Manitoba, and before that, in northern Saskatchewan.
