I haven’t written here for quite a while, but I haven’t stopped constantly thinking about my fantastic niece Madison. I think of her when I see a sunflower growing in a garden, or a plastic one at the ice cream stand, when I play hockey as it is one of her passions, when my teenage girls are figuring out who they are and stressing me out in the process, looking at a beautiful sunset or a picture of one as she loves taking pictures, when I see a tattoo on a young women, any time I read about another missing person,
watching a motocross bike carving out a line,
yes I think about her all the time.
We will never stop, looking, hoping, loving, missing, thinking, about Madison!

Investigators with the North District Major Crime Unit continue to actively investigate Madison (Maddy) Scott’s disappearance. Anyone with information concerning Maddy’s disappearance are asked to call the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477
In lieu of interviews, but in recognition of the third year anniversary of Maddy’s disappearance, her family wished to issue the below statement.
May 28th will mark 3 years since the disappearance of Madison Scott. It remains an unexplained mystery that leaves a family searching for answers, and ultimately the return of a loved one. The days are often extended and certainly do not get easier as time elapses. The holidays tend to lose the majority of their significance with the absence of a family member, thus resulting in an incomplete gathering. Our days are consumed reflecting on her presence and the memories, while we anticipate the dreams that present the opportunity for the long-delayed reconnection; the opportunity to communicate a few words, or the grasp of a hug is an indescribable sensation, although it is a just dream. We grip closely the words that include Hope, Faith, Believe, and Love, which have simply coalesced within our daily language. The respective connotations produce positive energies that have enabled us to remain strong and convinced that the desired solutions will be yielded.
One of the most difficult aspects is having the matters of a reserved family become a public affair. Although we all have become much invested in retrieving a common explanation, the words to address the topic are most challenging to find, and often awkward to communicate. Furthermore, it is near impossible to find the appropriate words to express our appreciation for the persisting support. Our family has been extremely fortunate to be surrounded by relentless family, friends, and communities. We are forever grateful for the enduring and continuous support.
Our family has been preparing for the 3rd Maddy Poker Ride as we approach the date of Maddy’s disappearance. The poker ride enables our family to maintain our presence and sustain awareness within the community. It is also an opportunity to correspondingly enjoy the activities that Maddy loves most. This event is a true representation of Maddy; it has become a social gathering of friends, family, and community members in a setting in which Maddy blooms most while presenting a connection to the outdoors through her preferred activities. We hope you are able to join us in this opportunity to maintain the awareness and enjoy the day in true Maddy fashion.
We would once again like to thank you for your extended and persistent support.
Sincerely, The Scott Family
