A 20-year-old Vanderhoof girl has gone missing at a party during a camping trip at Hogsback Lake over the weekend.

Madison Scott was last seen at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. Friends say when they woke up she was gone. The Vanderhoof RCMP received a call from her family that she had not returned home on Sunday at 2 p.m.

“That’s when we called search and rescue,” Staff-Sergeant Dave Beach of the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment told the Express on Monday.

“Before search and rescue go out they have to get authorization from the police because we coordinate the search,” he said.

Beach added that Scott’s phone was last used at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning – approximately four hours after she was last seen.

Police have located her tent and her truck but have no leads to her whereabouts at this point.

“Right now we’re trying to follow the leads from the people that were at the party – but we have no significant leads so far,” said Beach.

Volunteers from Nechako Valley Search and Rescue, Burns Lake Search and Rescue and Prince George Search and Rescue, along with both the Vanderhoof and Fort St. James RCMP detachments were still out searching for her when the paper went to press on Monday. A swift water rescue team was also called in to assist.

Madison Scott is described as 20 year old Caucasian, 5 foot 4, 170 lbs with ginger hair. She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and blue jean Capri pants. The RCMP are requesting the publics assistance in finding Scott. Anyone who may have seen Madison or may know of her whereabouts should contact the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment immediately at (250) 567-2222.
