Police in B.C. say the remains of Madison Scott, who went missing in May 2011, have been found and they’re searching a rural property in Vanderhoof that is tied to the discovery.
RCMP say Scott’s remains were found “days ago,” but couldn’t say exactly when and where they were located.
North District RCMP say they’re on scene executing a search warrant on the property in Vanderhoof in the province’s central interior, about an hour’s drive west of Prince George.
Police say Scott’s remains have been positively identified by the BC Coroners Service, and the family has been told and are asking for privacy.
Scott went missing after attending a friend’s birthday, and was last seen in the early morning hours of May 28, 2011.
Cpl. Madonna Saunderson with the RCMP says the discovery of Scott’s remains is a “significant development” for the ongoing investigation, and foul play has not been ruled out.
