One day after Red Deer RCMP requested public assistance to locate Beverly Lampert and Richard Vanderbroek, police advised that the couple had been located deceased.

This followed a statement made June 30 by the Red Deer RCMP requesting public assistance locating the couple, last seen June 21.

Lampert, 63, and Vanderbroek, 82, were believed to be travelling to Cranbrook, B.C. 

Concern for their well-being was raised after the couple were not heard from after an expected return date of June 25.

They were located deceased July 1 near Highway 22 in the Crowsnest Pass area north of Lundbreck. An autopsy July 4 suggested no foul play, police said, but their deaths remain under investigation. 

Southern Alberta RCMP’s major crimes unit has been leading the investigation, with a media release noting assistance from Red Deer and Crowsnest Pass RCMP.
