There's been a third strange occurrence in the B.C. Interior over the past week, though police are not saying that any of them are connected.
Ryan Provencher, 38, was last seen driving a 2019 white Jeep Cherokee in Surrey on July 17.
The passenger in the vehicle was Richard Scurr, 37.
The vehicle was found abandoned near Logan Lake, which is in the Southern Interior. It's about 50 kilometres north of Merritt.
Provencher is 5'10" and 180 pounds with short brown hair; Scurr is 6'4" and 220 pounds with a brown-haired brush cut.
Two other cases concern the public
Last night, the B.C. RCMP reported that two young men from Port Alberni are missing after their burned-out pickup truck with a camper was discovered on July 19. It was about 50 kilometers south of Dease Lake on Highway 37.
Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, are each described at 6'4" and approximately 169 pounds.
A man's body, not that of the two missing men, was found a couple of kilometres away on a highway turnoff.
Last week, two young tourists—American Chynna Deese and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Robertson—were found murdered on the Alaska Highway south of Liard Hot Springs in northeastern B.C.
"Police acknowledge there are growing community concerns about the ongoing homicide investigations in northern B.C." the B.C. RCMP said last night. "The Dease Lake incident occurred on July 19, 2019 and the other incident occurred between July 14-15, 2019, approximately 470 kilometres away."
