      Two Port Alberni teenagers wanted for murder have not been seen since July 22.

      But today, the Manitoba RCMP revealed that items linked to Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and Kam McLeod, 19, were found on August 2 along the shoreline of the Nelson River.

      They were nine kilometres away from where they abandoned a burned-out vehicle that carried them into Manitoba.

      No information is being released about the items that were discovered.

      The Nelson River runs through Gillam, Manitoba on its way to Hudson Bay. 

      A damaged aluminum rowboat was found on the shore of the river on August 2.

      The Mounties say a dive team "conducted a thorough underwater search approximately 29 metres around the location where the boat was found. The search did not uncover any additional items linked to the suspects."

      Schmegelsky and McLeod are charged with second-degree murder in the death of UBC botany instructor Len Dyck, whose body was discovered south of Dease Lake on July 21.

      The pair are also suspects in the murders of a young tourist couple, Chynna Deese and Lucas Charlton. Their bodies were found on July 15 along the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs.
