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.
Shortly after releasing a crime alert saying Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky has been spotted in Yorktown, Saskatchewan, @RCMPSK sent out a follow up that they no longer believe the vehicle is associated with the 2 teens wanted for 3 deaths in northern #BC. @BlackPressMedia pic.twitter.com/cSGcBxa7uW

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.
Anyone who sees the two suspects is asked to not approach as McLeod and Schmegelsky are considered to be armed and dangerous, and call 911.
