EDMONTON — A murder trial has heard that two Alberta seniors who disappeared almost six years ago were active and in good health.

Bret McCann testified that he visited with his parents, who were in their late 70s, the day before they set out for a camping holiday in British Columbia.

He says their motorhome was their pride and joy, and they were avid campers.

Lyle and Marie McCann were last seen fuelling up their RV in their hometown of St. Albert, north of Edmonton, on July 3, 2010.

The vehicle was found on fire and an SUV they had been towing was discovered in the bush west of Edmonton in the days that followed.

Travis Vader has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.
