Madison Scott

It has been ten years since Madison disappeared and the RCMP and Scott family are again asking for the public’s help in solving her disappearance.

On May 29, 2011, a family member reported Madison Scott missing to the Vanderhoof RCMP. Madison was last seen at approximately 3 a.m. on May 28, 2011, while at Hogsback Lake, celebrating a friend’s birthday. Early in the investigation, police determined that it was out of character for Madison not to be in contact with her family and/or friends.

Madison was a vibrant, free-spirited, loyal and kind individual. When not hard at work at her parents’ family business, Madison immersed herself in family/friends, hockey, softball and photography. This year, Madison would be 30-years-old. She would be starting her career and perhaps even gotten married with the hopes of having children. Madison's family have missed out on watching her become a wife, mother and aunt. Madison and her family deserve justice and closure.

We really appreciate the help we have received from the police during these tough years. As the investigation is ongoing we thank the RCMP for their efforts, states the Scott family.

Should you have any information regarding the disappearance of Madison Scott, please call the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222, or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a message on their website at solvecrime.ca.

The Scott family continues to offer a $100,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and laying of charge(s) of individual(s) responsible for Madison's disappearance.

Maddy's mother and father are sitting at the kitchen table with the reward poster, featuring Maddy’s photo is on the table.

[Maddy's mom] What would you like to say? Ummm.

[Unknown female voice] Sigh, it's ok.

[Maddy’s dad] It is definitely really hard to believe it has been ten years since, there is never a day that goes by, she is part, a part of what we are.

[Maddy’s mom] Maddy just had her thirtieth birthday at the end of April and she is missing out on a lot and she has missing out on her life for ten years.
You know, she is a wonderful, messy, creative, loving aunt, sister-in-law and she is missing. That is the message we keep having to go back to. She is missing and we have to find her. Somebody knows something and someone needs to come forward with info.
We need help to find Maddy. If anyone has info they can either contact the local detachment at 250-567-2222 or if you remain anonymous you can report to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

We have a $100,000 reward we are offering and we have a recurring image of Maddy sitting somewhere waiting for us to rescue her but we haven’t found her yet. We need to find her. So please help us find her.

We have a yearly poker ride to raise awareness that Maddy is still missing, where we meet out on the trails where Maddy went missing. Last year and this year because of COVID, we haven’t been able to have it. Which is unfortunate because it is great awareness to keep the word out that Maddy is still missing. We unfortunately won’t be able to have it again this year. We are working on something and we are hoping that people will be out on the trails next Saturday, on the day that she went missing. Just to think about
Maddy and keep your eyes open.

We need to find Maddy.

We would like to thank everyone. We have had amazing support and it just continues and we are so grateful to everyone.

[Maddy’s dad] That is the one thing that resonates with me, is the support we have received over the last ten years and continue to. It is amazing the amount of support, you know over the years, whenever we needed to do a fundraiser, that has never been an issue. That’s one thing we are very grateful for.

[Maddy’s mom] Thanks to everyone.
