ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The intensive search in the area for Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, both of Port Alberni, British Columbia, was sparked by two sightings around the tiny Manitoba town of Gillam last week.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are cutting back the number of officers to 40 from a previously undisclosed number, and the Canadian military and air force, which had been supporting the police, are pulling out, the RCMP said.

"I know that today's news is not what the victims' families and the people of Manitoba wanted to hear," assistant commissioner Jane MacClatchy told a news briefing."However this is always a possibility when searching in vast rugged areas in terrain that is difficult." Police have combed 11,000 sq km (6,835 sq miles) of the area and canvassed 500 homes and empty buildings, employing dogs, drones and "some of the most advanced technologies available," MacClatchy said.

"While the search in northern Manitoba is being scaled down, it is not over and will not stop until there is a resolution." Police charged McLeod and Schmegelsky last week with the second-degree murder of Leonard Dyck, 64, a botany professor whose body was found near the teens' abandoned flaming car in Dease Lake, British Columbia, on July 19.

The pair, who were first reported missing, are also considered suspects in the murders about 500 km (310 miles) away of Chynna Deese, 24, of Charlotte, North Carolina, and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler, 23, from Sydney.

The manhunt has been going on for over a week, crossing 3,000 km (1,865 miles) from the crime scenes in British Columbia to northern Saskatchewan to Manitoba, through geography which has been repeatedly described as a hindrance to the search.
