Last year Georgia Scott along with other members of the drill team made flags for their various horse events. Each Drill Team member must find one local business to sponsor them. MBG Logging (Maddy, Georgia, Ben) sponsored Georgia. Georgia designed her own flag to draw attention to Maddy’s disappearance. The drill team rides at various horse events and fall fairs. They ride their horses and make patterns with their flags to music.
The drill team was part of the parade of lights Friday night. Hope Faith Love <3

Re: Error in the re-printing of the letter sent to the Citizen following the October 2011 fundraiser and benefit for the Madison Scott Search Fund
We are writing to apologize for the error in the re-printing of the letter of thanks the Scott family sent to this newspaper following the October 2011 fundraiser and benefit for the Madison Scott Search Fund. While there has not been another fund raiser, we are greatly comforted by, and continue to receive strength from, the generosity of all those involved in the continuing search for Madison and the various events that have been held throughout the year to raise awareness of Maddy’s disappearance.
We again express our deep-felt thanks and gratitude to all the individuals, families, businesses and organizations who have given so much. As a family we have benefited greatly from the communities’ ongoing support. This support is a true testament to the communities in which we live and we as a family cannot thank you enough.
We are also grateful to this newspaper for its willingness to publish this letter so that we can reach out again to the many that have given so much of themselves and given of their time and effort in helping to find Madison.
Tremendous effort to find Madison is still being made in a variety of ways and we are hopeful that, through the perseverance, love, hope and faith of all concerned, Madison will soon return to us.
Most sincerely yours,
Dawn and Eldon Scott & Family, Vanderhoof, BC

On December 6th many people joined together at WL McLeod for a Walk to Honour women and their families that experience violence. Ice candle holders marked with the names of the missing and murdered women line the police station and it is a powerful statement of the heartache and loss we have experienced in this community. Maddy Scott has not been forgotten and as the holiday approaches our one wish and desire is for her to return home! Any people wishing to come forward with ANY information should contact the Vanderhoof RCMP at at 250-567-2222 or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Alternately mail Box 1190 Vanderhoof, B.C. VOJ-3A0 or use TIPS page

I updated the copied facebook group comments to this site.
One person asked:
I’m wondering what it is people believe and if they would clarify this ?
My favorite reply was:
Believe: I believe that someone knows the answer, I believe that some day the truth will come out, I believe that there is good in the world and it will conquer over evil and I believe in the power of positive energy and prayers. I believe in silver linings to every dark cloud and that you will see if you look hard enough. I believe our community is a good one and we have to keep close together in rough times and help our neighbors.

Here is the new song Nils just recorded entitled “United We Stand”.
||Young on the run, we had fun in the sun
We grew up in a hurry, with no time to worry
Anybody would take, anybody would break, our innocence
We must’ve missed the call, that a darkness would fall
This town would see changing in no time at all
Somebody would take, somebody would break, our liberty
||We’ve asked you to leave, we’ve asked you to go
||United we stand, every woman and man
Every child with a mother, every sister and brother
We’ll stand in your way, and at the end of the day
We’ll be winning our fight for our freedom
||Take a plane, take a bus, you won’t get through us
You best be heading out the highway, or reaching for the sky
Hit the road if you care, stick around if you dare, and we’ll find ya
We stand big strong and tall, all for one, one for all
The bigger your army, the harder you’ll fall
Your eternal disgrace is the guilt on your face, you’re hiding

Day 559 with out Madison has came and went……..
“559 days with out Maddy” was the float theme, that Eldon, Dawn and their supporters entered in the annual Vanderhoof parade of lights.
The parade was well attended by both spectators and floats, both braving the cold evening.
Vanderhoof has an amazing community spirit!
The waves, cheers, and the never ending exchange between the parade entrants and spectators of “Merry Christmas”, brings home the spirit of Christmas, and the overall amazing support by so many in our quest to find Maddy!

The following is a statement issued by Maddy’s family and the Madison Scott Search Team. Last night CBS 48 hours mystery aired a show on the Highway of Tears, which contained a story on the disappearance of Madison Scott. The Scott family participated in the show to continue awareness in the search for answers in Maddys disappearance. The show pointed to Fribjon Bjornson as being in a relationship with Maddy and being involved in her disappearance. We want to clarify that he was not responsible for her disappearance or involved in a relationship with Maddy when she went missing. There is no connection between the two cases. Thank you for your continued support.

Great effort by all on the Maddy pumkin walk booth. Angie and her nieces carved 21 pumpkins, and every pumpkin is pertaining to Maddy. The reward amount on one, Crimestoppers number on another, her tattoo on one, faith, love , hope. Angie & Brad made a beautiful sign. See the photos below.
Thanks to all who helped set up and managed the pumpkin walk booth.
An excerpt from an email from Dawn “Day 521 today , please let someone see our station tomorrow & feel a fraction of what I did today seeing the pumpkins & let them give us answers.”
