Love of Life, poem by Shirley A.

Maddy,brightens the room, by just coming in
With some good-natured fun,and a mischievous grin
She’s a joker and clown,she turns pranks into art
But she doesn’t mean harm,since she has a good heart.
Her great passion for life,takes her to the outdoors
Maddy truly likes sports,in the snow,fields and shores
While she’s biking through trails,when she’s boarding down hills
When she’s playing hockey with friends,from all sports she finds thrills
Maddy loves taking pictures
And would survey the land
She’d gallop off on her horse
Camera in hand.
And she works hard all day, with mechanical skills
Maddy puts in time,to earn pay for her bills
As a hired apprentice, in her Dad’s big old shop
She would work hard til she dropped.
And Maddy loves music, and radio’s tunes
She enjoys funky songs and all hip hop tunes
Plus, she liked rock bands,with their potent guitar
She thinks music should be;found wherever you are
She’s especially known,to be there as a friend
If you’re stuck in a jam,then her time she will lend
She’s known for her laughter,for her rescue we yearn
We pray she is safe: always hope she’ll return..

Are there any new leads in this case?? Someone has got to know something or have seen her that night! I havent seen any facts in the news but i have been passing what info ive seen on here..It might be more helpful if we know more!?
I sincerely hope she comes home soon,or her friends & family get the answers they are looking for! My thoughts are with you all in this difficult time.. ♥

  • Murray Scott
  • The RCMP have have not let Eldon and Dawn know that much about their investigation other than that are still following up on all their tasks. The RCMP do not give out much information during an active investigation as not to compromise the process. They still have 14 members on the case and have two new investigators brought in to review the case to date and hopefully provide a different perspective.
  • We do know the RCMP have done a lot questioning of the people at the party, and some have been questioned multiple times. Friends and family are still searching areas, checking out leads from psychics, putting up posters, and talking to as many people as possible.
  • It appears there were around 46 people at the party Friday night, mostly 18 to 25 years old, and a few older partiers up to 40 years old. Almost all are from the Vanderhoof area. Either Madison was left to camp by herself or left with someone else, though information to date says she was left there by herself. A couple of the partiers were back at Hogsback campsite the next day cleaning up and saw her tent and truck there but did not check if she was in the tent. There was a large party of around 150 people at the Hogsback campsite the next night, and no one saw Madison.
  • We hope the RCMP are making headway with their investigation.
  • If you know anyone who attended the party please stress them to them to come forward with any information, its time to do the right thing and bring Madison home.

We need to find Madison!

Someone knows something and it’s time to come forward; imagine this girl being your friend, daughter, sister, grand-daughter, cousin, or even girlfriend… You would be devastated

. No one deserves this suffering; least of all Eldon, Dawn, Ben, Georgia and all of Madison’s extended family.If you have any information at all you should call the Vanderhoof RCMP at at 250-567-2222 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

If you are concerned about being anonymous mail Box 1190 Vanderhoof, B.C. VOJ-3A0 or use the TIPS PAGE form.

One Month later, Madison Scott is Still Missing

Prince George, B.C.-It’s been one month since Madison Scott disappeared from the Hogsback Lake area South of Vanderhoof and there’s still no sign of the 20 year old girl.  Sergeant Rob Vermeulen says the investigation continues to be a priority for the North District Major Crime Unit and the Vanderhoof RCMP. “We are continuing to follow up on a number of tasks that the file and the public has generated.”  Vermeulen says they are still asking anyone who was in the area the weekend of May 28th to come forward. He says they are still looking for her iphone 4 and her keys which may be on a black gothic lanyard

. Madison’s parents offered a reward of $15,000 last week for information leading to their daughter’s safe return.

Divers plunge into Madison Scott mystery (Prince George Citizen)

An RCMP dive team was scanning the water of Hogsback Lake, Friday, with eyes open for Madison Scott, a missing young woman.

She was last seen at the popular recreation spot south of Vanderhoof at about 3 a.m. May 29 at a party. She, like many from the general area, was camping at the lake for the weekend. She was reported missing by family when she did not return Sunday afternoon as expected.

“We had the dive team out on the lake [Friday], using sonar. They will be out on the water for eight to nine hours,” said provincial RCMP spokesman Sgt. Rob Vermeulen.

“We will be using a diver to check the water around the campsite. That is not based on any information, it is standard search procedure when we have a mystery like this. When you don’t have a particular lead, you have to work at ruling things out. We had the ground and surface water search, including from the air, and now we are checking in the water around the camping area.”

Police are following up on several tips, but no strong lead. A rumour about her cell phone being used at 7 a.m. the day she disappeared was baseless, said Vermeulen, but “there are all kinds of rumours and we have to follow up on everything we hear.”

“I know the family is still searching the area, with the help of friends and supporters,” said Vermeulen

. “They are keeping in very close contact with our investigators, yes.”

A fund has been set up at all branches of Integris Credit Union to gather donations for a more exhaustive private search.

“It is healthy,” said Integris spokesman Dan Wingham of the sentiments brought forward by the public.

There are branches of Integris in Prince George, Vanderhoof, Fort St. James, Quesnel and Clinton.
