Images have emerged of murdered Sydney traveller Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese hugging at a petrol station two days before their bodies were found beside their blue van on the side of a highway in British Columbia.

As the Royal Canadian Mounted Police released an image of a bearded man wanted over the murders, it was also revealed two teenagers were also missing in the same part of the country.

They say the wanted man was seen speaking to Fowler the day before he and his girlfriend were discovered dead

The mystery deepened as police appealed for information on the missing teenagers whose burning truck was found next to the body of a man on Friday 500km away.

Kam McLeod, 19, and 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky, were the drivers of a Dodge pick-up truck found on fire in the British Columbia province, at an area known as Dease Lake.

Lucas's father, NSW Chief Inspector Stephen Fowler, appealed to the public to help police adding no tip is too small at a press conference held in British Columbia.

"I may be an experienced police officer, but today I am standing here as the father of a murder victim. We are just distraught," he said.

He appealed to the public to help police adding no tip is too small.

"It's a love story that has ended tragically … it's the worst ever love story, because we now have two young people who had everything ahead of them, tragically murdered.

The grieving father said he communicated with Lucas hours before he left on his trip.

"He's a loss to so many people.

"And his girlfriend also. It's just devastating and our heart goes out to the whole of her family. You know, we're just crushed."
