KAMLOOPS - Police have identified a suspect in the case of Sherri McLaughlin, who disappeared 16 years ago from Kamloops.

At a press conference in Kamloops Thursday, RCMP would not name the suspect but said he is already in jail on unrelated charges.

The man has been declared a dangerous offender by the courts.

The suspect is a violent sexual offender from Vancouver Island, who has been behind bars for 10 years in a Lower Mainland prison.

He has refused to speak to police about McLaughlin's case, despite her family writing him letters in prison begging for answers.

McLaughlin's brother pleaded again Thursday for some closure - for a location of his sister's remains.

"Please, please give us that final piece of information so we can bring Sherri home," James McLaughlin said.

The case was cracked in the last year as a result of a combination of evidence, inclluding paint chips and a deer whistle left at the scene of the crime that came from the suspect's vehicle.

However, Staff Sgt Garry Kerr said there still isn't sufficient evidence to put the suspect behind the wheel that night, therefore charges have not yet been laid.
