Vanderhoof, B.C. – An emotional plea from the parents of Madison Scott is being credited with generating some new tips to police.
“We have received about two dozen new tips since the news conference on Tuesday ” says RCMP Sergeant Bob Vermuelen of E Division Communications
. “Investigators are now focusing on tracking down the information .”
Sgt. Vermuelen says when the 20 year old Vanderhoof woman disappeared, investigators had about 100 pieces of information to verify. The plea for more information was made by Madison’s parents at a news conference in Vanderhoof this week. ( see previous story)
Madison’s mother, Dawn, read a statement which urged people to come forward with information and to go straight to the police “Any information needs to go directly to police as they are in the best position to ask the right questions and use that information to help find Maddy.”
Madison was last seen early Saturday May 28th at Hogsback Lake near Vanderhoof. She had gone there to party with some friends. Her phone was last used Saturday morning, and while she is missing, her truck and two tone tent were located at Hogsback Lake.
An extensive search of the area and a day long search of the lake by the RCMP underwater team, failed to find any trace of her.
RCMP have 14 investigators working on this case.
