Five Years to the Day – Help us find Madison Scott

Vanderhoof RCMP are still seeking information five years later on the disappearance of Maddy Scott.

  • May. 27, 2016 10:00 a.m.

Madison Scott has been missing for five years.



On Saturday, May 28, 2011 every parent’s nightmare became a reality for the Scott family of Vanderhoof.

On Friday, May 27, 2011, 20-year-old Madison Scott attended a party at Hogsback Lake, which is a Forest Service Campsite located approximately 25 kilometers south of Vanderhoof. Maddy parked her white 1990 Ford F150 pick-up truck and pitched her tent nearby as she was camping there with a group of new found friends from Vanderhoof.

The group was celebrating a friendʼs birthday and at the end of the evening, Maddy was left on her own in her tent. Everyone else left the party by 4 a.m.

On May 28, 2011, something happened between 4-8:30 a.m. that led to Maddyʼs disappearance. Foul play is suspected and Maddy remains missing despite a vigorous and in-depth RCMP investigation and ongoing efforts by family and friends.

We know someone out there knows something about the disappearance, but either won’t, or can’t tell us what happened to Maddy. We are asking any individual who has information and has not already come forward to contact the police or Crimestoppers,stated lead investigator Cst. Tom Wamsteeker of the North District Major Crime Unit.

In support of the on-going investigative efforts, the RCMP are releasing a video that provides a previous re-enactment, private reward and information the public needs to know to help with our investigation.

The Scott family would like to thank the community and RCMP for their continued support in our search for answers regarding the disappearance of Madison Scott.

The Maddy Scott family team will be holding the 5th annual Poker Ride at Hogsback Lake this Saturday and we encourage everyone to come and participate as we continue our search for answers.

If you have information we ask you to call the Vanderhoof RCMP at (250) 567-2222 or if you wish to remain anonymous call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
