Vanderhoof, BC – On Friday May 27th, 2011, 20-year-old Madison Scott attended a party at Hogsback Lake, a Forest Service Campsite located approximately 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof. She drove her white 1990 Ford F150 pick-up truck, pitched her tent and was camping there with a group of friends from Vanderhoof.
On May 28th 2011 at approximately 4:00 a.m. everyone but Maddy left. She remained on her own in her tent and has not been seen since.
Dawn and Eldon Scott, Maddy’s parents, are urging anyone with information to come forward. “These are not easy times – our daughter is still missing and we need your help. We have learned a lot through this process, but one thing that has become apparent is that information is what drives an investigation. There is no excuse not to call the police with what you know. There is no way to rationalize talking about this case with others and not the police. If you want to know how you can help us, call the Vanderhoof RCMP or Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous, with any information that you may have because we need to find Maddy.” said Dawn and Eldon Scott. “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have had to cancel The All In For Maddy 9th Poker-Ride for this year however, if needed, it will be hosted again next year.”
Sgt Matt MacLeod of the North District Major Crime Unit adds: “We continue to follow up on and investigate all tips that are received regarding Maddy. We believe that something criminal may have occurred between 4 and 8:30 a.m. on May 28, that led to her disappearance, we do not believe she simply walked away. We know someone out there has information that can help us find Maddy or identify the person(s) responsible.”
This investigation is a priority file and remains open and active. Police are still interested in receiving information, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. If you have any information that can help police with this, you are asked to call the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250 567-2222 or Crime Stoppers at 1 877 222 8477.
