The director of the documentary ‘The Vanishing of Madison Scott,’ a film designed to raise awareness of her missing persons case is offering his condolences to the Scott family.
RCMP issued a statement on May 29 that remains identified as those of Madison (Maddy) Scott have been found on a rural property on the east side of Vanderhoof, 100 kilometres west of Prince George.
The 20-year-old had been the subject of a high-profile missing person campaign ever since May 28, 2011, when she was last seen at Hogsback Lake, a camping spot 25-kilometres southeast of Vanderhoof, where she had been celebrating a friend’s birthday.
“This devastating update to the case shatters the hope that Maddy would be found alive and well and reunited with her family,” said director Steven Scouller.
“This awful news will now move the police investigation in a new direction, as they have a positive line of inquiry to follow. I have no doubt that the police will be working hard to discover how Maddy arrived at the location she was found and ultimately what her cause of death was.”
Scouller said it is important that people don’t jump to conclusions and allow the RCMP to conduct their investigation and trust “that in the fullness of time, once facts have been established, this information will come out into the public domain.”
