Search narrowed for Tennessee hiker missing in Maine

The Maine Warden Service has narrowed the search area for a Tennessee hiker who disappeared from the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Officials said the search area for Geraldine Largay, 66, of Brentwood, Tenn., was narrowed Monday to a 14-mile section of the trail in the Carrabassett Valley region of western Maine. Wardens believe the area of highest probability is a 9-mile section of the trail between Lone Mountain and a dirt road west of Sugarloaf Mountain. Largay started her hike in April at Harpers Ferry, W.Va., with a destination of Mount Katahdin in Maine, the trail’s northern terminus. She was supposed to meet her husband a week ago, but never showed up.
