When Steven Scouller read an online account about the disappearance of Madison Scott, he knew he could put his skills as a filmmaker to use in helping to solve a mystery that has baffled investigators for nearly three years.
In May, he packed his bags and flew halfway around the world from his home in Scotland and began collecting images and interviews with the aim of “producing a film that could act as a central repository of accurate information relating to the case.”
The result, released last week, is an hour-long step-by-step account of the events that led up to Scott’s disappearance and the frustrating aftermath as she remains missing.
Scott was last seen during the early morning hours of May 28, 2011 at Hogsback Lake, 25 kilometres southeast of Vanderhoof.
When the popular 20-year-old failed to return home later that day, a massive search was launched but to no avail and despite a concerted effort to keep her name and face in the public’s eye ever since, Scott has not yet been found.
“It’s vital to the police inquiry that all facts are accurate and told exactly as they had happened, so in order to do that I wanted to have the people at the centre of the case who are Madison’s family and friends to tell their stories and give first hand account of their experiences and actions,” Scouller said.
It also includes interviews with Scott’s parents, as well as friends, searchers and police and with Scott’s friend, Jordanne Bolduc, who had gone to Hogsback Lake with her but left early after the party of about 50 people turned rowdy when some interlopers showed up.
The last confirmed sighting of Scott was at about 3 a.m. Her truck and tent were found abandoned later the same day.
As well as working behind the camera, Scouller is the staff documentarian for Police Scotland and writes true-crime books. The documentary won the family’s seal of approval when it was posted on the findmaddy.ca website.
In the first week it was online, the documentary, The Vanishing of Madison Scott, drew 35,000 hits according to Scouller.
“That’s a phenomenal statistic and I hope every day that more and more people watch the film,” Scouller said.
He also hopes it will prompt someone to step forward.
“Somebody out there knows something of significant importance and they need to come forward now, even if they wish to remain anonymous, that’s fine,” Scouller said. “Please just give us the information we need.”

At the time of writing this our daughter, Madison Scott, has been missing for 951 days from Hogsback Lake, BC. Maddy’s disappearance on the morning of 28th May 2011 has touched countless people and has greatly impacted our family.
We can never stop looking until we have Maddy home. Our family’s personal limitations in searching for our daughter have, from day one, been tremendously boosted by the diligent work, dedication and support of family, friends, community members and the RCMP.
We were approached by Steve F. Scouller, an independent film maker, who wished to make a film solely about Madison’s story.
Mr. Scouller’s background as an investigative filmmaker leads us to believe that this film will help in our concerted efforts to reach the right people and to encourage those who have the answers to step forward. We are grateful for the making of this film and wish to thank Mr. Scouller for his efforts in helping to keep awareness of Maddy’s disappearance at the forefront of people’s minds. We also give a most heartfelt thanks to all of you who appeared in the film and assisted in its production.
Please watch ‘The Vanishing of Madison Scott’ and please forward any information you may have on Maddy’s whereabouts to the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222 or call Crime Stoppers at
Thank you very much.

The Vanishing of Madison Scott
Produced & Directed by Steven F. Scouller
Raising awareness is of vital importance in the search for Madison Scott. Getting all the correct facts and relevant information out in the public domain is paramount. As an investigative filmmaker I set out to document the known facts that surround Madison’s disappearance by constructing a chronological timeline of events based on the facts told via first-hand accounts. It is my hope that this film will be able to assist the RCMP by raising awareness about Madison’s disappearance.
The film delivers an accurate reflection of the unfolding situation and documents the search efforts as well as the on-going processes in place that help to keep the search effort and awareness campaigns alive.
This highly impactive and emotional film acts as a central repository of key information that people can watch to get the facts quickly and effortlessly, allowing the steady stream of information to keep expanding out into the public domain.
It has been a humbling experience to work alongside Dawn, Eldon and their family and friends. It’s amazing to see first hand the support the community has offered the Scott family and I am appreciative for the help that I have received from the people of Vanderhoof who have helped and supported me in making this film. I’d like to take this opportunity to express my personal thanks to the RCMP for their help and cooperation.
