      Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky are not the only young B.C. fugitives being sought by police.

      A day after the Manitoba RCMP underwater dive team completed its search of the Nelson River for the suspected triple murderers, the Surrey RCMP asked for the public's help to find two other young men charged with extremely serious offences.

      Nathan Barthlette, 21, and Meaz Nour-Eldin, 22, are wanted for allegedly being involved in a kidnapping.

      They're also each facing charges of unlawful confinement, aggravated assault, use of a firearm during the commission of an offence, and robbery.

      According to the Surrey RCMP serious crimes unit, the kidnapping and assault occurred as a result of a "targeted incident". Other suspects are already in custody.

      Barthlette is white, 5'7", 121 pounds, and has blue eyes and black hair.

      Nour-Eldin is 6'1", 181 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair, and of Somali ancestry. He has tattoos on his left hand, left wrist, and upper torso, and he's suspected of fleeing to another part of Canada, possibly Ontario or Quebec.

      Anyone with information can call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If they want to remain anonymous, they can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
