RCMP in B.C. have joined the hunt for an elderly Edmonton-area couple who went missing en route to Abbotsford.

Lyle and Marie McCann were last seen July 3 at a gas station. They were in their motorhome, towing a light-green Hyundai Tucson.

Police found the couple’s motorhome destroyed by fire on July 5, but didn’t start a missing-persons investigation until the McCann family reported them missing on July 10. The SUV is missing as well.

“This is a jigsaw puzzle that we’re putting together,” said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Patrick Webb. “At this point, the focus is on finding the McCanns.”

Bret McCann, Lyle and Marie’s son, said the family has set up a Facebook page in the hopes of finding his missing parents.

“Our whole family is just devastated by this,” McCann said. “We’re very hopeful that they’re somewhere. They may be hurt, but they’re somewhere.”

McCann also had a message for his mother and father.

“We know you’re out there and we’re looking as hard as we can,” he said.
