Ontario Provincial Police say they are investigating “numerous” reports involving possible sightings of two young men believed to be those wanted in multiple murders in British Columbia.

Vancouver researcher Leonard Dyck and Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese were found dead last month in northern B.C.

OPP say the reports have come in from across the province, and investigators cannot confirm at this time whether any of the sightings are, in fact, of 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod.

They say there have been no confirmed sightings of the pair in Ontario so far.

Provincial police say they are working with RCMP and have assigned an investigative team to follow up on any tips related to the suspects.

A manhunt spanning several provinces began last week after Schmegelsky and McLeod were named as suspects in three killings.

Most recently, RCMP searched extensively in parts of northern Manitoba.

Police warn the two men are considered dangerous and should not be approached.
