Hiker missing on Appalachian Trail

About 130 people, some with dogs, horses, ATVs, and aircraft, searched Saturday for a Tennessee woman who disappeared while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Maine. John MacDonald of the Maine Warden Service said investigators made contact with some hikers who may be able help them determine whether Geraldine Largay, 66, of Brentwood, Tenn., was seen in an area of western Maine between two shelters. Largay, an experienced hiker, started her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with a destination of Baxter State Park in Maine. Her husband had been keeping track of her progress along the trail and was making predetermined stops to replenish her supplies. They were to have met last Monday in Wyman Township, but she never showed up. (AP)
