The Mysterious Vanishing of Madison Scott — She Was Last Seen on May 27, 2011 (from First to Know)

March 24th, 2016

The last time Madison Scott was seen alive was on May 27, 2011.

 Madison and a friend of her ventured out to Hogsback Lake in Vanderhoof, British Columbia, to party and camp by the shoreline overnight.

The 20-year-old ended up staying behind and camping by herself after her friend reportedly hurt her knee and decided to go home. Being an experienced camper who’d explored Hogsback plenty of times, spending the night alone didn’t bother her.

But when she didn’t return home the next day and no one had heard from her, her parents, Eldon and Dawn Scott, called the police to investigate.

Everyone who was questioned about her disappearance admits that the last time they saw her was around 3 a.m.

Her truck and tent were still at the campsite, but she was nowhere to be found. There didn’t appear to be any sign of a struggle, or any reason that she would just vanish without telling anyone.

Madison disappeared 10 miles away from Highway 16.

Over the past 40 years, there have been dozens of young girls and womDont-Hitchhike-Highway-16_fe-300x169en who have gone missing or were murdered along Highway 16, also known as the Highway of Tears, which traverses through stunning, remote wilderness. The victims range in age from 12 to 33. The stretch of road has become so synonymous with grisly stories that there are even billboards that say “GIRLS DON’T HITCHHIKE on the Highway of Tears.”

After all these years, authorities are still uncertain whether the vanishings and murders are the work of a single serial killer or multiple offenders.

Madison has been missing for five years, but her family is still holding onto the hope that she’s alive. They often return to the location where she vanished, hoping to find some clues. Volunteers also continue to search the area, tirelessly covering hundreds of miles.

There are countless rumors that have circulated concerning where the missing have ended up, including human trafficking, dungeon-like bunkers hidden on rural properties, and the involvement with local drug dealers.

Watch the video above for more on this family’s heartbreaking story and search for their beloved Madison.

Four years after Madison Scott went missing, friends, family and police are continuing to hold out hope the mystery of the Vanderhoof woman’s disappearance will be finally solved.

“The police continue to actively work on Maddys’ file,” her brother Ben said in a statement issued Thursday.

“Accordingly, we must maintain our search and awareness efforts to generate new leads to justify the police to continue to allocate the resources to find Maddy.”

Scott, then a vibrant and popular 20 year old, was last seen during the early morning hours of May 28, 2011 at Hogsback Lake, 25 kilometres southeast of Vanderhoof.

When she failed to return home later that day, a massive search was launched but to no avail and despite a concerted effort to keep her name and face in the public’s eye ever since, Scott has not yet been found.

“The Maddy posters, stickers, and signs enable us to maintain our presence and enhance awareness in the surrounding area,” Ben Scott said.

These signs and banners are important to maintain the awareness of who Maddy is. The signs are widespread and observed by so many people, including locals, commuters through the community, and others.”

An “All In For Maddy Poker Ride” will be held Saturday with participants traveling through the Hogsback and Blackwater area where Scott went missing.

“This is our team’s primary awareness campaign,” Ben Scott said. “The event keeps people thinking and looking for Maddy in the area that she went missing from with the ultimate goal of increasing awareness.

Nearly 400 people have participated in the previous three poker rides and another strong turnout is expected this year. More information, including start times and locations for horseback and all-terrain vehicle riders and walkers can be found at madisonscott.ca.

“We would like to thank the community for all of your support and we truly are forever grateful for all that has been done to assist our search and awareness efforts,” Ben Scott said. “We are extremely fortunate to have had unconditional support from the community and we are optimistic that this continued support will lead to the desired answer.
“My sister has been missing for four long years, and we need to continue our search efforts to end this nightmare.”

Anyone with information concerning Scott’s disappearance are asked to call the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
