  1. Update to the missing RVers story, as of 7/27/2010:

    The SUV was finally found abandoned in the bush about 30 km from Edson. A “person of interest” with a lengthy criminal record and outstanding warrants was found in an isolated house after an extensive search and was arrested on those warrants and is still thought to be a “person of interest” in the case, but no charges related to the missing RVers have been laid. A second person, thought to have been associated with the house was taken into custody, but was released without being named, but no sign of the missing RVers has been found. The RCMP and many locals have been searching extensively for the couple and there are, I believe, 16 officers assigned full-time to the case.

    The “person of interest” was reportedly previously charged for stealing and torching someone’s vehicle, so a lot of assumptions have been made, especially since he lives in the area, has no fixed address, is also reportedly a seriously addicted individual and has an outstanding restraining order regarding his ex-wife.

    The family is still hopeful and the community of St. Albert has rallied around to help them, but the RCMP are not as optimistic as they now clearly suspect foul play.
