Letters: 20 year old still missing

Williams Lake parent seeks information on missing daughter

Unbelievably, my 20 year old niece, Madison Scott, remains missing after mysteriously disappearing on Saturday, May 28, 2011, from the Hogsback Lake forestry campsite 25 kms south of Vanderhoof, one hour west of Prince George.

She was camping with a group of young people from Vanderhoof who were celebrating a friend’s birthday. Everyone left the party by about 4 a.m., and Maddy was left alone at the campsite.

Something happened that led to Maddy’s disappearance; foul play is suspected. Maddy remains missing despite a vigorous and in depth RCMP investigation and ongoing efforts by family and friends.

We believe someone knows where she is, but they have not come forward with the truth. The purpose of this letter is to appeal to all British Columbians and visitors to be watchful for and mindful of anything suspicious as they head out into the outdoors as spring and summer approach. Our family needs everyone’s help.

If anyone has any information that will help bring Madison home to her family, come forward now! If you have information, or were at Hogsback Lake the weekend she went missing and have not yet come forward, please call the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Our hearts are shattered by Maddy’s disappearance. Further information, including photos of Maddy, can be found on madisonscott.ca or the Help Find Madison Scott Facebook page. Thank you for helping us to find Maddy and bringing her home where she belongs.

Sincerely and gratefully,

Sandra Kelly
