Human remains found in search for Amazon missing: Bolsonaro

Human remains have been found in the search for British journalist Dom Phillips and Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira, who disappeared in the Amazon after receiving threats, Brazil's president said Monday, as relatives said two bodies had been found.

"The evidence leads us to believe something bad was done to them because human innards were found floating in the river, which are now undergoing DNA testing," President Jair Bolsonaro told CBN Recife radio.

Phillips's niece Dominique Davies told AFP in a text message that "two bodies have been found" in the search, and that relatives were awaiting confirmation from federal police as to whether they are the missing pair -- although police in Brazil denied the report.
