Search for missing Tennessee hiker in Maine continues

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — The Maine Warden Service is looking for help from searchers affiliated with the Maine Association of Search and Rescue as they continue their search for a hiker missing on a rugged section of the Appalachian Trail.

Geraldine Largay of Brentwood, Tenn., has been missing for more than a week.

The warden service had said the logistical and physical challenges involved in scouring the remote terrain restricted its ability to use untrained volunteers. So they’re asking members of the MASAR to call the organization’s duty officer.

Officials said they are planning for a more intensified search as more resources become available.

The 66-year-old Largay, an experienced hiker, contacted her husband from the top of Saddleback Mountain on July 21 but failed to meet him as planned the following day.
