“Walk for Maddy” Tomorrow (from Omineca Express)
Friday, January 27, 2012 – 3:16 PM, By Christina Doll, Vanderhoof, B.C.
A walk has been organized in Vanderhoof tomorrow to raise awareness about a missing local woman. 20 year old Madison Scott disappeared last May 28th after attending a party at Hogsback Lake.
The four kilometre “Walk for Maddy” will begin at Mapes Hall at 2:00pm and end at the lake. Once participants arrive, they can write a message on a lantern to be placed in the campsite.
North District RCMP Media Relations Officer Constable Lesley Smith says the walk is not a fundraiser.
“But what I understand is there are t-shirts. “Hope is Your Way Home” is what’s written on these t-shirts and they’re available by donation. A number of community members are already wearing these t-shirts and the family is very touched by that.”
School District 91 has provided a bus to transport participants back to Mapes Hall after the walk.
