She was a young woman, twenty years old at this time and just starting out in life. She never harmed anyone but someone took her.

She is still missing.

The RCMP investigation is ongoing and tips are still coming in.

Someone, somewhere, knows something about what happened to Maddy. It is possible this person or persons may have spoken about her disappearance to a friend or relative.

If anyone knows anything at all, even if you think it is not relevant, please find it in your heart to break your silence and help to end the ongoing nightmare and heartbreak of her family.

Please do not keep this information to yourself. You might be preventing it from happening again.

There is still a reward of $100,000 for information leading to a resolution of this case.

The phone number of the Vanderhoof RCMP is 1-250-567-2222 or if you wish to remain anonymous please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477

It would be much appreciated if people would look for signs of anything amiss when in the bush or on the water. People are still searching for Maddy.

Thank you.

“Maddy everyone really misses you. I hope you know how special you are. I am hoping that one day your friends that were with you at the party remember the friendship you gave them. Ponder their memories as it is impossible for that many people to be there that are your friends and not one of them know where you are????? I find that hard to believe that no one has yet remembered where you disappeared to so many months ago now.” wrote C.K. on the blog Help Find Madison Scott.

Her family has offered a $100,000 reward for information that solves the mystery of her disappearance and brings any wrong-doers to justice.

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

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.
