Another year has come and gone

2,195 days and still no Maddy! It is the sixth year anniversary of when 20 year old Maddy went missing from an overnight party at Hogback lake.

“We are not here doing the poker ride event to remember her. We are trying to keep spreading awareness that she is still missing, and we need everyone’s help to find her” says Dawn Scott, speaking tearfully like it happened yesterday.

Sunny day doesn’t brighten away the sadness

This past Saturday, May 27, was an incredibly hot day for the 2017 Maddy Poker Ride. But folks still came out carrying water bottles to walk, ATV or horse ride three different trails in support of the Find Maddy awareness campaign. The number of people who attended this year is believed to be up from previous years. In terms of poker hands sold; there were 105 sold to horse-back riders, 59 walkers and 264 quads.

WATCH: Madison Scott vanished on May 28th, 2011 after attending a party at Hogsback Lake, a campsite about 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof.

 What was supposed to be a fun night out with friends for a young Vanderhoof woman turned into a lifetime of anguish for her parents who haven’t stopped searching…

The last time Madison Scott was seen was May 28 2011. She was 20 years old.

Six years have passed, but her parents are still holding onto hope. Crime Stoppers needs your help do you have information that could lead to the whereabouts of Madison Scott?

Madison or Maddy as her friends and family call her attended a party at Hogsback lake- about 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof, which is not far from Highway 16.

Although, Maddy would have known the partygoers, a number of people showed up later in the night. Some of the party goers would be known to Maddy and her friends and some would not. While most people had left Hogsback Lake when the party ended, Maddy stayed behind in her tent.

Two days later, on Sunday morning, Maddy’s parents found her tent and off-white 1990 Ford F-150 Pickup truck at the camp site. Her tent had been flattened…her purse left inside the truck.

Two items are missing, her keys, which may be on a black gothic theme lanyard and her iPhone. Police believe those items may aid in the investigation.

Maddy is close with her family. Her parents describe her as a beautiful, caring and loving person with a great sense of humour. They’ve offered a reward of up to one-hundred thousand dollars for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for her disappearance.

Investigators believe that someone knows something. They’re asking anyone with information about the disappearance of Madison Scott to call police. Or if you wish to remain anonymous visit bccrimestoppers.com or call 1 800 222- 8477.

Today is the 5th anniversary of Madison Scott’s disappearance (from My Prince George News)

Madison-from newspaper

It’s been 5 years to the day since Madison Scott disappeared while camping with friends at Hogsback Lake near Vanderhoof.

“The investigation is still active and, in the words of Constable Tom Wamsteeker, there’s somebody out there who knows something and they’re just not telling us,” says North District RCMP Corporal Dave Tyreman. “Whether they can’t tell us, won’t tell us. Whether they do it anonymously, whether it’s a letter to the parents or whether they call Crimestoppers – somebody or some people know exactly what happened to Maddy.”

He says the Major Crimes unit is still pursuing information related to Maddy’s disappearance.

“In speaking with Major crimes unit, they believe this to be highly suspicious in nature and that’s why they’re involved. It’s not just somebody who wandered off. It would be nice to find some kind of information that we can further our investigation into where exactly is Madison Scott.”

Tyreman says as time passes, circumstances can change.

“Sometimes it’s a disadvantage, sometimes it can be an advantage. Maybe there’s somebody who knows something and, as years go on, they have a change in lifestyle, they’re not hanging around with the same people. Maybe they’re not at threat by somebody else in providing that information so they may come forward.”

Tyreman says anyone with information is encouraged to come forward. Tips can be made anonymously to Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
