Madison “Maddy” Scott went missing. She was last seen during the early morning of May 28, 2011 at a party at Hogsback Lake about 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof.

The Scenario

On the evening of May 27, 2011 Maddy Scott had attended the party with her friend Jordi Bolduc at Hogsback Lake about 25 kilometres south of Vanderhoof. After returning from home to pick up some larger tent poles Maddy setup camp and retired for the evening. At about midnight a fight erupted at the party. Her friend Jordi Bolduc asked Maddy if she wished to get a ride back home with her and her boyfriend as Jordi was injured and drunk, Maddy declined, and Bolduc left with her boyfriend. Maddy was already in her sleeping bag and didn’t want to get up.

8:30 am the next morning Bolduc returns to the campsite with her boyfriend to pick up her clothes and sleeping bag. Bolduc found Scott’s tent unzipped with her sleeping bags and stuff moved to the side. She said that she didn’t see Scott and never reported this to anyone.

Maddy was last seen wearing black T-shirt and blue-jean capri pants.
