The mother of one of the two Port Alberni teens wanted for the murders of three people in Northern B.C. is pleading with them to “come home safe.”
The Star Vancouver reports that a handwritten note was given to them by Bryer Schmegelsky’s family on Friday. The report says the note is meant for Bryer and that his mother hopes he will see it.
“Bryer is a careing(sic), loveing (sic) boy that would never hurt anyone. He grew up in a loveing (sic) home and we miss, and love him dearly,” the note reads.
“We want both boys to come home safe.”
The note is signed “Bryers Mom.”
18-year-old Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod are accused of killing three people in northern B-C, including a tourist couple and a botany professor.
The intensive search for them continued Friday morning around the northern Manitoba community of Gillam.
Manitoba R-C-M-P tweeted that officers are “working diligently” to find the two young men.
Police from across Western Canada and Ontario are involved in the manhunt which is focused on the dense, swampy forest surrounding the town.
RCMP are also urging people not to spread what they call “online rumours”
They say a photo circulating online of a man holding yesterday’s newspaper is a fake.
