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.
