The search is still on for 20 year old Madison Scott who has been missing since May 28 after disappearing from  Hogsback Lake, south of Vanderhoof.

Parents Dawn and Eldon Scott made an impassioned plea last week, offering a reward of $15,000 for information leading to the safe return of their daughter.

“While we continue to receive outstanding support from our friends and the community, and the RCMP continues to follow up on information and tips, we have not been able to locate our daughter,” said Dawn Scott in the statement.

“We are hopeful and continue to believe that someone out there has the information we need to bring our daughter home. Please, search your heart, search your mind, review your memory and call the RCMP with any bit of information you may have,” she said.

According to Sgt. Rob Vermeulen, senior media relations officer for the RCMP’s E Division the investigation into Madison’s disappearance remains a priority for the North District Major Crime Unit and the Vanderhoof RCMP.

“Investigators remain in town following up on the over 500 tasks generated by this file and from information received to date,” he said.

According to Vermeulen, the investigation has determined that there are two items that are yet to be recovered.

RCMP believe that recovering the missing items may assist in locating Madison. “Police are looking for her new IPhone 4 that had a bluish green or turquoise skin cover. Police are also looking for Madison’s keys. They are described as a large bundle with a Ford truck key on it. It may or may not be on a black Gothic themed lanyard. These two items were last seen in Madison’s possession and have not been located, despite a massive search by search and rescue personnel and volunteers,” he added.

Vermeulen said the RCMP are aware that the Scott family are issuing a $15,000 reward for information leading to the safe return of their daughter.

“Police believe that someone out there has that critical piece of information needed and are also appealing to the public to come forward and speak to us,” Vermeulen said.

Anyone with information should contact the Vanderhoof RCMP immediately at 250-567-2222 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
