CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (AP) — Searchers are continuing to look for a Tennessee woman who went missing on the Appalachian Trail in Maine.
Wardens say 66-year-old Geraldine Largay of Brentwood, Tenn., was supposed to meet her husband on Monday. The search is focusing on an area around the backside of Sugarloaf Mountain.
Her husband, George, had been keeping track of her progress along the trail and was making pre-determined stops to replenish her supplies. He told WLBZ-TV that he remains positive because of the scope of the search and because his wife is an experienced hiker who had adequate supplies.
Weekend searches utilized more than a 100 people on Saturday and Sunday. Geraldine Largay had started her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with a destination of Baxter State Park in Maine.
