So many strange disappearances have occurred on a stretch of highway that covers 837 miles in the state of British Columbia Canada, mostly involving women or children. Few roads on earth are more dramatically breathtaking than Canada’s Highway 16. The lonely highway stretches east-west through British Columbia, winding its way through snow peaks, bustling mill towns, and a remote and lonely wilderness that feels as if it has been lost in time. No one knows what or who exactly is to blame for the missing and dead. Canadian Mounty police in some cases believe it is the work of a serial killer, yet more than 3 decades have passed without any luck. Even a special task force has been formed and a Canadian government inquiry was opened regarding why so many women ranging in age from children to adults have either been killed or have never been found.
Another young woman disappeared never to be seen again. A 20-year-old female vanished near what has come to be known as the Highway of Tears. The young girl was last seen at 3 a.m. on the night of May 27, 2011.
Madison Scott was with a large group of friends at Hogsback Lake, British Columbia partying and camping on the night of Friday May 27, 2011. Maddy and a girlfriend, Jordanne Bolduc, were at the party together. About 50 persons were attending. Maddy’s girlfriend reportedly went home early after hurting her knee or “fell into the fire” as she states in the link below, but Maddy decided to stay and camp alone. She was an experienced camper who’d been to Hogsback many times. She was last seen by party goers at about 3 a.m., on Saturday. The next day as people were cleaning up, they saw her tent pitched beside her truck, but did not see her. The party continued for another night, but no one saw Maddy. Her parents were concerned as they did not hear from her, but they felt she was responsible and did not report her missing.
On Sunday, May 29, Maddy’s parents trekked to the lake to find their daughter. They located her truck and flattened tent. Her purse was inside her truck, but there was no sign of her cell phone. Maddy’s keys and iPhone were gone. Her family contacted police and the official search for Maddy Scott began. After a thorough search of the campsite and area around Hogsback Lake, police determined that Maddy likely left the campsite in a vehicle. Investigators have interviewed the people who attended the party, even administered polygraph tests on some of the party goers, but to date, there are no suspects in the disappearance of Maddy Scott.
This occurred very close to what Canadians refer to as the “Highway of Tears”, a stretch of road where several people have gone missing or been found dead since 1969. Could Sasquatch be the killer?
