The teenage fugitives who are wanted by police over the suspected killings of an Australian tourist and his American girlfriend have been spotted more than 2,000km from where they were last seen. 

Canadian authorities have been searching for Kam McLeod, 19, and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky.

The pair have been described the pair as 'dangerous' and 'not just a couple of teenagers.'

Authorities have announced they are investigating possible sightings of the pair in the province of Ontario - 200,000km from where police had been searching. 

One person reported seeing a 'suspicious' pair driving a white vehicle through a construction site on Highway 11 about 10.30am on Thursday.

The Ontario Provincial Police said they were continuing to investigate the incident and were actively looking for the vehicle.

'Officers are urging anyone who sees any suspicious activity or a suspicious vehicle not to approach but to call 911 or the OPP immediately,' a statement from the OPP read.

The sightings come as police announced they were scaling back the hunt for two teenage triple-murder suspects who vanished into the dense forests and swamps of Manitoba, in the center of the country.

Two air force planes that joined the search last weekend were being withdrawn, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said, while police would also be reduced after nine days of scouring the area.
