It’s been seven years since Madison Scott disappeared and the police investigation into her disappearance remains active.

Police continue to seek help from the public regarding the then-20-year-old Vanderhoof woman.

On Friday May 27, 2011, Scott attended a party at Hogsback Lake, a Forest Service campsite located approximately 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof. Scott drove her white 1990 Ford F150 pickup truck, pitched her tent and was camping there with a group of new friends, from Vanderhoof. They were celebrating a birthday and around 4 a.m. on May 28, 2011 everyone but Scott left. She remained on her own in her tent.

On May 28, 2011, something occurred between 4 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. that led to Maddyʼs disappearance. Despite a vigorous and in depth RCMP investigation and ongoing efforts by family and friends, she has not been found. It has been seven years and Maddy remains missing. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.

“We know someone out there knows something about the disappearance,” said Cpl. Tom Wamsteeker of the North District Major Crime Unit. “We are asking any individual who has information about Maddy’s disappearance to contact the police or Crimestoppers.”

The Maddy Scott family team will be holding the seventh annual Poker Ride in the Hogsback Lake area this Saturday May 26. On The Trail To Find Maddy. Police encourage everyone to come and participate as they continue to search for answers.
