Week-long nightmare in disappearance; [Final Edition] | Print |  E-mail

It's been a week since Sherri McLaughlin went missing, but Kamloops RCMP and McLaughlin's friends are no closer to knowing where she is or what has happened to her.

"We don't know what to do," McLaughlin's best friend, Arlene Heimbechner, 20, said yesterday.

"We don't even know if she's still in Kamloops.

"Kamloops is a big town. She could be anywhere. She could be up in the hills. Who knows?"

McLaughlin's friends don't know if the 20-year-old waitress is even still alive, Heimbechner said.

RCMP continued to use tracking dogs on the weekend to search for McLaughlin.

She disappeared about 3 a.m. on Sept. 18 while cycling to visit former boyfriend Shane Gowans, 19.

Gowans found McLaughlin's mountain bike -- which had been run over by a vehicle -- and her overnight bag by the side of a road when he went looking for her.

Police have received 90 phone tips to date.

But they have no leads in the apparent abduction.

"We would be lying if we didn't say we were pretty concerned about it," said Sgt. Shawn Wylie.

Gowans was cleared as a suspect last week after passing a polygraph test.

The Mounties started broadcasting a CrimeStoppers video of the case on Friday.

McLaughlin is the daughter of Corp. Gary McLaughlin, of Surrey RCMP. Police say that her disappearance has nothing to do with her father's occupation.

Kamloops hasn't had any similar disappearances since the highway murders in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the Interior and Alberta.

About three dozen young women vanished or were found dead in that period.
