Rivet RVers missing in Canada

Can We Help?

There is a couple of RVer's who have gone missing. The couple are Lyle and Marie McCann. The family have set up a facebook site.

As an RVer my thought and prayers are with the family. Help us find our parents - Lyle & Marie McCann | Facebook

Jackie

This has been much in news in Canada (we are driving south after spending more than a month in Alaska). Their motorhome was found burned near the campground they were in. They and their SUV are both missing. I think they are both in their late 70's.

Good morning everyone, I would like to see this on the front portal for a couple of days. Again just to show support for the family and to possibly locate the SUV.

So the AClass was pulling a Hyundai light green SUV. The Aclass was found burned, down an unpaved off road site (where the gent wouldn't have usually taken his RV), as well as close to home, considering he was a long haul trucker, family don't think Edson would have been his first stop. That being said the SUV and the couple haven't been found. I'm hoping some of you are supporting the facebook site, and maybe keeping an eye out for the SUV.

SUV found stashed in the bushes. It is believed that the couple has met with misfortune given a statement by the RCMP. They have a "Person Of Interest" they are pursuing. Fellow is considered highly dangerous and his father told the press that he'd likely do serious damage to anyone attempting to catch him.

As to the actual where-abouts of the couple, and whether they are actually alive or not - the fellow is known to be quite violent, is unknown.

Not the kind of fellow you want walking in to your camp site all of a sudden.

How sad..................

Terrible. We are hoping for the best for these folks. Our thoughts are with the family.

And it reminds us that it behooves us all to be careful and to remain aware of our surroundings while traveling and camping.

Which asks, how do we really keep ourselves safe?? in a RV park - that should be fairly safe, but boondocking or in parks without camp hosts? I was telling RustyRivet we should get some pepper spray for animals. But now what to do?? Big dog? Big gun? Big=-=-=What????????????

Now some wise person on this site did a great job of explaining why they travel with a hiking stick? of course it had to do with maintaining personal safety but it was very well written. Needless to say I can't find it right now.

But it is scarey to think that we are all at risk, generally very open and love to give tours of our trailers.

I will remember the story for a while I'm sure.
