Updated 1 year ago

About 130 people, some with dogs, horses, ATVs and aircraft, are searching for a Tennessee woman who disappeared while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Maine Warden Service Corp. John MacDonald said Saturday investigators have made contact with hiker as they try to determine if 66-year-old Geraldine Largay was seen in an area of western Maine between two shelters. It’s been sunny with temperatures in the low 80s as searchers, among them wardens, forest rangers, horseback teams, the U.S. Border and Civil Air patrols, look for Largay. Largay, of Brentwood, Tenn., was supposed to meet her husband Monday but never showed up. The 5-foot-5, 115-pound Largay, an experienced hiker, was last seen wearing a black pullover shirt, tan pants, a blue hat and a black-and-green backpack.
