At least one suspect in the disappearance of British journalist Dom Phillips and his guide Bruno Pereira in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest has confessed to killing and dismembering the men, broadcasters CNN Brasil and Band News reported on Wednesday.

The federal police had said in a statement earlier that they were still searching for Phillips and Pereira in what they described as a homicide investigation, following the arrest of two suspects in the case.

One of the two suspects confessed to police that they had killed Phillips and Pereira and gave the location of the bodies, CNN Brasil reported, citing police sources. Earlier, Band News reported a confession by both suspects.

Reuters witnesses saw police take a masked and hooded man they described as a suspect out on the river where the men vanished. Police did not comment on the reported confession.

Police have arrested two suspects in the investigation: fisherman Amarildo da Costa, known as “Pelado,” and his brother Oseney da Costa, 41, or “Dos Santos.
