Dear Editor

We are overwhelmed with the success of the poker ride for our daughter, Maddy, held May 26 at the Hogsback Lake campsite near Vanderhoof where she mysteriously went missing over a year ago.

The poker ride was held to keep the awareness going that she is still missing. Our thanks go out to the participants; over 300 ATV’s, 90 horses and riders and 130 walkers! We are so thankful for the generosity of the Mapes Hall Association and the Mapes community for helping to host this event.

And we couldn’t have started this event without our Team Maddy, comprised of family and friends, who planned, organized and held this event to continue with hope that Maddy will be found.

We also thank the businesses and individuals who donated generously toward this event with prizes, resources and support.

Thank you many times over to all of the participants, businesses and volunteers who made this event successful.

Our appreciation also goes out to the RCMP who have worked intensively on Maddy’s case this past year.

After a difficult and heartbreaking year our biggest request remains that whoever knows the truth lets it be known so we can have our daughter home.

We are confident that, living in an area of kind, generous and compassionate people, that Maddy will be home soon.

Thank you to everyone, this past year, that has helped us continue our search for her.

Dawn and Eldon Scott
