The manhunt for two carjackers ended Wednesday morning 30 miles south of Phoenix, after a 130-mile pursuit that ended with the pair allegedly committing suicide.

The two had abandoned their vehicle Monday afternoon after an accident at Grand Canyon National Park and that evening were alleged to have stolen a visitor's vehicle at gunpoint.

Later, at approximately 7:15 p.m., a man called the emergency dispatch center from a market within Grand Canyon Village to report that two men had taken his vehicle at gunpoint from a location east of Mather Point and had headed west toward Grand Canyon Village.

The two men matched witness descriptions of the men who had left the scene of the vehicle accident that had occurred earlier near Twin Overlooks.

The two men have been identified as Travis N. Twiggs (aka T-Bo), 36, 5-foot-8, 200 pounds, with brown hair, blue eyes and facial hair; and Willard Twiggs (aka Will), 38, 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, with shoulder-length blonde hair and blue eyes. Both men have tattoos on their arms and legs.

The stolen vehicle is a 2008 white Dodge Caliber 4-door hatchback, bearing Arizona license plate 606RFC.

The two men are considered armed and dangerous. Travis "T-Bo" Twiggs suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and may behave unpredictably.
