Canadian authorities are struggling through remote terrain in their nationwide manhunt for two teenagers accused of killing three people.

The expanded investigation came nearly a week after authorities completed an "exhaustive" search in the nearby community of York Landing and were unable to substantiate what officials described as a credible sighting.

A local patrol group had spotted two suspicious men on foot near the York Landing landfill, police said.

McLeod and Schmegelsky have been the subject of a wide-ranging manhunt that began last month and has spanned vast stretches of remote terrain across four provinces.

Though the pair were initially treated as missing persons, authorities later said on July 23 that they were wanted in connection to the double homicide of Deese and Fowler, and for the alleged second-degree murder of Dyck.

Dyck, a lecturer in botany at the University of British Columbia, was found dead near a car that belonged to McLeod and Schmegelsky. Authorities discovered the vehicle, which had been set on fire, 30 miles south of Dease Lake, in northern British Columbia.

The bodies of Deese and Fowler were found roughly 300 miles away, along Alaska Highway 97 near Liard Hot Springs.

The couple had been setting off on a road trip to Alaska when they were killed, a relative told NBC News.

The teens were thought to have been traveling to Whitehorse, in the Yukon, to look for work when relatives lost contact with them, police have said.

One of the teen's fathers, Alan Schmegelsky, told The Canadian Press that his son had a difficult childhood and was likely on "a suicide mission."

Authorities have described an intense search for the pair that has included sifting through hundreds of tips, combing through dense forests and abandoned buildings, using military aircraft and canvassing hundreds of homes.
