Tennessee Hiker Remains Missing in Maine
CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — It has been one year since a Tennessee woman disappeared while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Maine, and her whereabouts remain a mystery.
Sixty-six-year-old Geraldine Largay was attempting to hike the northernmost 1,000 miles of the trail and was just 200 miles from her goal when she vanished on July 22, 2013, in rural Franklin County.
The Brentwood, Tennessee, woman was last seen by a southbound hiker, between the trail's Spaulding Mountain and Poplar Ridge lean-tos.
She had been meeting her husband at spots along the trail to replenish supplies.
The Maine Warden Service and volunteers have searched for her without finding anything.
The state Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife says about 28 hikers go missing on the trail in Maine each year, but most are found within hours.
