Personal belongings of missing UK journalist Dom Phillips and indigenous specialist Bruno Pereira have been discovered by Brazilian authorities.

Mr Phillips’ boots and a rucksack containing clothes, as well as Mr Pereira’s health ID card, a flip-flop, black trousers, and boots, are among the items. On June 5, the two went missing while on a reporting trip in the Amazon rainforest via boat.

The cops discovered possible human remains last week. The “organic stuff” discovered in a river near the town of Atalaia do Norte has been analyzed by experts.

Blood traces found on a boat belonging to a fisherman, who has been arrested, are also being tested. Another boat belonging to the suspect was also discovered in the past 24 hours.

Both men have been threatened, according to indigenous groups, for their work in the region, which has experienced illicit fishing, forestry, mining, and drug trafficking.
