Madison Scott investigation remains active

Madison Scott

The investigation into Madison Scott’s disappearance has been led by the BC RCMP Major Crime -Section Special Projects Unit in support of the Vanderhoof RCMP. The investigation remains active and ongoing. Police need further help to find justice for Madison Scott and her family.

Thirteen years ago, Madison disappeared from Hogsback Lake where she was 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. Foul play was suspected. Tragically, Madison’s remains were located on a rural property in Vanderhoof one year ago. Investigators appreciate the public’s interest in the case and hope to provide further details in the future, however, no further information can be released at this time in order to maintain the integrity of the investigation.

Family say Madison was a vibrant, free-spirited, loyal and kind individual who immersed herself in family, friends, hockey, softball and photography. This past April was Madison’s birthday. She would have been 33 years old.

On their ‘Justice for Maddy’ Facebook account, the Scott family posted a message to commemorate the day and thank the public. “The significance of this year is that it is approaching one year since her remains were discovered. While finding Maddy has yielded some relief, it has since generated many other questions that remain unsolved. It is challenging to comprehend the varying emotions that we experienced at that time. Once again, the community was there to stabilize our family as we processed the unexpected information. We are forever grateful for the ongoing love and support we have had over the last 13 years. We are unwavering in our belief that justice will be obtained.”
