Journalist Dom Phillips, 57, and indigenous expert Bruno Pereira, 41, were last seen on 5 June near the Javari Valley Indigenous Territory, which is in western Brazil near the borders of Peru and Colombia.
The two men were in the Sao Rafael community and were returning by boat to the nearby city of Atalaia do Norte, but they never arrived.
Local volunteers, the army, civil defence officials and state police have been searching for them and police have launched a criminal investigation.
