Tenn. hiker still missing; Sugarloaf searched


Searchers are continuing to look for a Tennessee woman who went missing on the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Wardens said Geraldine Largay, 66, of Brentwood, Tenn., was supposed to meet her husband, George, last Monday. The search is focusing on an area around the backside of Sugarloaf Mountain. Largay’s husband had been keeping track of her progress along the trail and was replenishing her supplies at predetermined stops. 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. Searches utilized more than 100 people on Saturday and Sunday. Geraldine Largay started her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with a destination of Baxter State Park in Maine.
