He said at the press conference that he won't speculate on how the investigation is being handled by the BC RCMP, but nothing could have prepared his family for this tragedy.
"Do not approach, take no action and call immediately 911", Shoihet said.
Both McLeod and Schmegelsky are described as six feet, four inches tall and around 169 pounds. McLeod has dark brown hair, facial hair and brown eyes, while Schmegelsky has sandy brown hair.
That man has not been identified, but police released a sketch of him. "They seemed like, I don't know, normal", Keeper said, pausing.
Mounties have confirmed Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod are wanted for questioning following the murders of Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese in northern B.C. last week, as well as an unidentified man found dead close to Dease Lake on Friday near a burned out camper owned by the suspects. They're likely still travelling, she said, but police don't have a possible destination.
The area around Gillam - which is about 1,000 kilometres north of Winnipeg - and the Fox Lake Cree Nation is surrounded by deep forests and small bodies of water, which can be found for hundreds of kilometres. Police did not say when or specifically where the two were sighted. Given these latest developments, Kam and Bryer are no longer consider missing.
RCMP said they originally thought the young men were missing until they received information on Monday that they were in northern Saskatchewan. They were seen at the time driving a grey 2011 Toyota RAV4.
"I may be an experienced police officer, but today I´m standing here as the father of the murder victim", said Fowler, a senior police inspector in New South Wales.

"Yesterday, we had no information as to Kam and Bryer's whereabouts".
"With respect to public safety, we share the concerns that are being raised, given the tragic and unusual nature of these two investigations that we have underway", Shoihet said.
This carnage took place near Dease Lake, 470km away from the Alaska Highway location near Liard Hot Springs where Mr Fowler and Ms Deese were found shot dead in a ditch. Police confirmed this week that Fowler, who is Australian, and Deese, who is from the US, were shot to death. While investigating the vehicle additional information led police to discover the body of the man shown in this sketch at a nearby Highway pullout.
The couple of about two years are believed to have been killed either last Sunday or Monday morning, when their bodies were found.
Police have released a composite drawing of the heavy-set, middle-aged unidentified man with a beard and are still hoping he will be recognized. "And so we recognise that there is a possibility that these could be linked", she said.
But they did confirm they are seeking to speak with a man seen arguing with Fowler, 23, on the night before he was murdered.
He said the RCMP is continuing to work across the country with law enforcement partners in attempting to track the teens' movements. Police said the pair had not been in contact with their families for a few days.
