SURREY - RCMP in Surrey say an investigation into two missing men whose vehicle was found south of Kamloops is not linked to three slayings in northern British Columbia.

Cpl. Elenore Sturko says police still aren't sure why 38-year-old Ryan Provencher and 37-year-old Richard Scurr, both of Surrey, went to the southern Interior.

The men were seen last week in Metro Vancouver, travelling in Provencher's 2019 white Jeep Cherokee.

The vehicle was found a few days later near Logan Lake, about 300 kilometres northeast of Surrey, but there has been no sign of the pair.

Police released information about the men on Monday, saying it is unusual for both to be out of contact with relatives for such an extended period.

Sturko confirms the case is unrelated to the northern B.C. homicides of two young tourists and an unidentified middle-aged man, as well as the search for two teenagers from Port Alberni who are now considered suspects in the murders.
