The person-of-interest in the case of a missing couple from St. Albert is facing a long list of charges unrelated to the case of the McCann's disappearance.

Travis Vader is answering to 16 charges in Evansburg, from driving while suspended, to obstructing a peace officer and possession of stolen property.

On Monday, Vader appeared briefly in an Evansburg courtroom via closed circuit TV.

Lyle and Marie McCann left for Chilliwack, B.C. on July 3rd and have not been seen or heard from since.

Police are still trying to piece together clues that may lead them to the missing couple.

The McCann's burned-out motor home was found on July 5th near the Minnow Lake campground approximately 35 kilometres southeast of Edson. On July 16th, their green Hyundai SUV was located deep in the bush about 30 kilometres east of Edson near Carrot Creek.

Travis Vader was arrested in mid-July on charges unrelated to the couple's disappearance. Vader was picked up by officers at a rural residence near Niton Junction.

RCMP believe Vader either knows something about the case or is involved in the disappearance of the St. Albert couple.

Vader's sister had told CTV News last month that she doesn't believe her brother is capable of hurting anyone. Bobbi-Jo Vader admitted her brother had been dealing with serious drug problems in recent years, and said she is glad he is in custody getting some help.

Vader is scheduled to appear in an Edmonton courtroom and a Barrhead courtroom Tuesday on the charges unrelated to the missing couple case.
