Vanderhoof,B.C. – On Monday, May 28th, it will be one year since 20 year old Madison “Maddy” Scott disappeared from a party at Hogsback Lake, approximately 25 km south of Vanderhoof.
She was last seen at around 3:00 a.m on the Saturday morning. Police located her tent and truck, but search efforts to date have not managed to find Madison.
“”This investigation remains a priority for North District Major Crime” “says Cst. Lesley Smith, North District Media Relations Officer “”We believe that there is information out there and it is our hope that someone will come forward to help us determine what happened. The police need information and Maddy’s family need answers.””

The family is now offering a $100,000 reward for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for her disappearance.
To mark the one year anniversary of the disappearance of Maddy, the family has organized a Poker Ride to take place on Saturday, May 26th, 2012 starting at Mapes Hall and covering trails readiating from the Hogsback Lake campsite. The Poker Run has been set up in three categories:
one for those who will be walking ( starts at noon)
one for those on horseback ( starts at 10 am)
one for those on quads. (starts at 11 am)
The run will take participants along the many trails radiating from the place where Madison was last seen. The idea is to have “Fresh eyes” looking along the trails for any sign of Madison.
A statement from the Scott Family , written by Madison’s Aunt Sandra Kelly Klassen, says the poker ride is called “Let’s Go All In for Madison Scott. Event details can be found on the Help Find Madison Scott Facebook page, or at www.madisonscott.ca . “The family encourages the public to participate and help further the search” reads the statement “If anyone knows any information that will lead to the discovery of Maddy’s whereabouts they are asked to call the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477”.
The statement concludes “A day without a loved one is uncomfortable, a month without a loved one is unbearable and a year without a loved one leads to despair, heartbreak and overwhelming grief. The Scott family appeals to the public, especially as people go out and about in the outdoors this coming summer holiday season, to report anything they find suspicious or of interest to the RCMP. The family is hoping that the break they need will come soon, and it will likely come from good people like you.” – Sandra Kelly Klassen
