The family of a missing Vanderhoof woman whose remains were found recently has found some relief, but is left with many questions.
On May 28, 12 years to the day after Madison Scott went missing, RCMP announced her remains had been found on a rural property on South Slope Street, east side of Vanderhoof.
Today (May 31), in a statement released through the RCMP, the Scott family said the notification from the Coroner’s Service has them “motivated to find answers to truly bring Maddy home.”
“We trust that with patience, persistence and belief that we will receive answers, and remain motivated to achieve closure.”
The discovery of Madison’s remains has given them the opportunity to put her to rest finally, said the family, adding, no funeral plans have been made yet.
The Scott family thanked the community for its outpouring support and has requested privacy through these times.
“The emotions that we have experienced since Sunday cannot be summarized. However, we are once again astonished at the outpour of support that we have received from family, friends and our communities,” the Scott family said in the statement. “This support has been unwavering since day 1, which we are forever grateful, and truly believe that it is the reason that Maddy has been found.”
