Search for Madison Scott Continues 5 Years Later

Friday, May 27, 2016 @ 3:02 PM

Vanderhoof, B.C. – Tomorrow will mark the five-year anniversary of the disappearance of Madison Scott of Vanderhoof.

On Friday May 27, 2011, police say 20-year-old Maddy attended a party at Hogsback Lake – a forest service campsite located approximately 25 km south of Vanderhoof.

Mounties say she parked her 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 friend’s birthday and at the end of the night, Maddy was left on her own in her tent. Everyone else left the party by 4 a.m.

Police say the next day, sometime between 4:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. something led to her disappearance – foul play is suspected and despite a vigorous search the investigation continues.

In support of on-going investigative efforts, the North District RCMP has released a video that provides a re-enactment, private reward and information they say the public needs to know to help in the investigation.

If you have any information regarding Maddy’s disappearance, you’re asked to call the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.


I certainly hope someone will feel the need to finally get the information they have, off their chest and come forward with it.

There are a LOT of people who have been adversely affected by this.

Its so sad for the families, Anita T. is also still missing.

The perfect reason why the thumbs up or down should be eliminated from this forum , its useless ….. post the names who hit the thumbs down … sick people.

one sick one next

You think this is something negative to post a thumbs down ,, ? post your name coward garbage?

Very sad! I sure hope that Maddy is found soon and that her family has the opportunity to find some peace by being able to lay her to rest!

I understood a thumbs down is 50% and a thumbs up is 50% automatically when you post. So I’m not really sure if someone is actually clicking a thumbs down. I noticed at times the numbers change very little when clicking one or the other and sometimes the numbers remain the same. Perhaps Opinion could clarify?

    Thumbs up and down are a percentage, the score is what is left after subtracting the down votes form the up votes. If you have 5 up votes and 5 down votes it is 50% and 50% with s score of 0.

    6 up votes and 5 down votes is a percentage of 55% and 45% with a score of 1 (total votes is 11 so 6 divided by 11 gives you the 55%, 5 divided by 11 45% and 6 minus 5 is a score of 1)

    As an example top post is 91% and 9% with a score of 27.
    This means the total votes is 33 – 3 up and 3 down cancel themselves out and you are let with a score of 27
    30 up votes divided by 33 is 91%
    3 down votes divided by 33 is 9%

      As above with Hart Guy score of 9 and 85% and 15%

      Total votes 13 or 11 up and 2 down so score is 11-2=9
      11 up votes divided by 13 total votes is 85%
      2 down votes divided by 13 total votes is 15%

      I prefer to think it does not really mean that 2 people do not hope Maddy is found soon, what I think it really means is 2 people will down vote Hart Guy no matter what he writes

    Also if you have 4 up votes and no down votes the totals are
    100% and 0% with a score of 4

    or 4 divided by 4 is 1 or 100%
    4 divided by zero is 0 or 0%
    4 minus 0 is a score of 4

So to bring the commenting back toward the subject matter;

So sad that Madison Scott’s family has no closure in her disappearance, I hope this anniversary effort is successful in bringing a conclusion.
