Rescuers continue to search for a woman who went missing while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Western Maine.
Approximately 60 searchers from the Maine Warden Service and MASAR continue to search for a missing Tennessee Woman. 66-year-old Geraldine Largay was last seen Sunday in Sandy River Plantation.
She had planned to meet her husband Monday in Wyman Township but never arrived.
Yesterday, wardens learned that an unidentified female hiker called the Stratton Motel on Wednesday, indicating that she was travelling south, the opposite direction of Largay, on the Appalachian Trail. She told wardens she spent Tuesday night with Largay at the Spaulding lean-to.
Heavy rain on Tuesday indicates that Largay waited out the rain in the lean-to for the day. It is believed she continued on her way north Wednesday morning.
Largay is 5'5", of slim build with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing tan pants, a black shirt and a black and green backpack.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 1-800-452-4664.
