On May 28, 2023, twelve years since the day that Madison Scott went missing, we – the Scott Family – were notified that Maddy’s remains had been identified.

Since May 28, 2011, we have been focused to find Maddy. While there is some relief that Maddy has been found, we are left with many questions that now has us motivated to find answers to truly bring Maddy home.

The emotions that we have experienced since Sunday cannot be summarized. However, we are once again astonished at the outpour of support that we have received from family, friends and our communities. This support has been unwavering since day 1, which we are forever grateful, and truly believe that it is the reason that Maddy has been found. As a family, we now have the opportunity to allow Maddy to rest although nothing has yet been planned.

We trust that with patience, persistence and belief that we will receive answers, and remain motivated to achieve closure.

We encourage anyone that has information that may further the investigation into Maddy’s disappearance to bring this forward to the RCMP. Please call the Tipline: 778-290-5291 or 1-877- 543-4822

We are extremely appreciative for the continued support but kindly ask for privacy through these times.

Sincerely, the Scott Family

    Blessings to the Scott family and to all in this community who knew and loved Maddy.
    Such a mix of relief, disbelief, extreme sadness and so much empathy for Maddy’s family. As a mother, I cannot even imagine the emotions this news has brought, much less having lived without knowing for 12 years.
    I hope the Scott family is not inundated with questions and comments at this time, as they need privacy and safety of each other to process this and start a new kind of grieving for their beloved daughter, sister…

  • To the Scott family,
    I’ve thought so often over the years about Maddy and you all, I can’t even fathom what you are going through & just know so many people like me from across the world have thought about & prayed for Maddy & your family! I hope that finding her finally brings you a little comfort & that you can bring her home where she belongs. Also know that I hope swift justice will come to those who did this to her. You are in my heart & prayers & I wish I lived closer so I could be there to support you all! You will forever be in my thoughts! God Bless
