Letter To The Editor: Our family needs everyone’s help

Unbelievably, my 20 year old niece, Madison Scott, remains missing after mysteriously disappearing.

Editor:

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, new found friends, from Vanderhoof.

The group was celebrating a friend’s birthday and at the end of the evening Maddy was left on her own in her tent.

Everyone else left the party by about 4 am. Something happened between 4 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. 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.

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.

Our hearts are shattered by Maddy’s disappearance.

Further information, including photos of Maddy, can be found on findmaddy.ca, madisonscott.ca or the Help Find Madison Scott Facebook page.

If anyone knows anything, hears anything, sees anything that will help bring Madison home to her family please call the Vanderhoof RCMP at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (anonymously, if needed).

You can also write to Madison Scott Search, Box 1190, Vanderhoof, BC, V0J 3A0.

Thank you for helping us to find Maddy and for helping to put our family back together again.

Sincerely and gratefully,

Sandra Kelly Klassen (aunt)

Williams Lake
